Spanish cross, strange numbers on pin?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

                  Any ideas on this Spanish cross, please.

                   The numbers on the pin are 2841. Could this be a WW2 copy for the recipient after losing the original?

                  Your thoughts would be most appreciated.

                   Thanks for your time.

Marcus,

 

I will give it a try to tell you what I see with your Spanish Cross.  First, I have never seen a four digit number on a pin marking like this before.  Second. the loose fit of the bottle shaped pin in the hinge also bothers me.  Third, I can't tell if the eagles are soldered in or a part of the casting but the odd scraped/scratched finish on the back bothers me as well.  Frankly, the scratch marks seem to be an amateurish  attempt to cover up bubbles caused by the casting process from what I can see.  

 

I am not a fan of your cross since if I can see three red flags it is three strikes and you are out with me.  Perhaps others can see something different.
