Possibly better chance if you post in the Imperial section instead of the Third Reich forum.

Hi,

Reverse finish, hardware and anti-rotation pin indicated TR period production.

The obverse frame beading is exceptionally worn and the core looks more like Imperial production but with poor detail yet near 100% finish.

I'd like to see some edge shots of the frame to see if it's been separated and re-joined and also of the inner edge of the beading to see if the core has been refinished.

Bit of a strange one from the pics so far.

Regards
Mike

Nice cross by B.H. Mayer.
If the frame beading was good, you would see the long bead on the
6 o'clock arm that shows up on some of the "26" marked crosses.
Here is mine to compare against.
