The cross is a bad cast, very clearly seen on the reverse. The pin, hinge and catch are also obviously cast. Besides the "muffin" crown, this should have been a dead give-away to the dealer selling this piece of junk. it doesn't say much for the dealer or his knowledge.

Agree that there are similar crowns but for me when I look I see those big blobs I think fake. Thanks for sharing the Boerger one. TPK
