      Yes I believe them all to be fakes.
      Starting from left to right, the first 3 are all "Bad crown" fakes.
      By enlarging the picture, you can see the off-set sweatband of the
      crowns.

      When I enlarge the picture, I loose detail in the far right hand cross enough
      to where it's hard to tell for sure. I think that one (far right) might be
      a "9th bead" fake.

        Thanks Greg, I got these a long time ago before I was a member of this site, but at least now I know, thanks for your time. Ralph

          Your welcome.
          I always hate letting people know that they're crosses might be fakes.
          If you could post a better picture of the cross on the far right, we could
          get a better read on it.

              Ralph,
              Your cross is indeed a "9th bead fake". You can see how the paint
              is missing from the overly large 9th bead and also the over/ under
              style "8" in the date.

              sorry for the bad news.

                Thanks Greg that's part of this hobby that we sometimes find out the hard way, I thank you for your input rather than writing total crap, that's what scares off the new collectors and they are the future who will take the hobby forward and look at it as an investment and maybe we will see a return on our money.
