Hey Guys,

I come across this cross today, I need help on authenticating it as I know very little on these earlier crosses.

Thanks,

Jordan

Hi Jordan,

I'd be running fast. Not a core from any genuine manufacturer I'm aware of. The hinge/pin look like they've been added recently (I'd guess replacing an obviously fake set-up). The lower case insert has imo been re-purposed (original old case but for something unrelated).

Regards
Mike

I agree with Mike on this one.

Hi Jordan,

I agree with the others, certainly not a good one!
