This is an AWS "pillow back" and I believe the screw part may be original but I believe the back plate is a replacement.

This cross appears to be in good condition. Why do you say "in this condition"? Is there some kind of damage or defect that we don't see?

The cross is unmarked so it will bring a little less money than a cross that is marked. A collector will immediately recognize, however, that it is a pillow-back Anton Werner & Söhne. As it was already pointed out, the backplate is a replacement so that takes a little bit away from the value as well.

I have seen AWS crosses in good condition, MARKED, with ORIGINAL turn-screws and backplates sell for an AVERAGE of 425,00 Euros.
