This type of cross was only issued for a few years until the company went into receivership. The cross retains some of its frosted and burnished finish and black paint to the centre. The frame on this example is marked "835" to the bottom arm of the cross. The medal loop also appears to have an "835" partly unreadable stamp to it.

I feel this cross was an awarded item due to its wear and tear but its in good condition overall . Rare maker to find GBP 7,750.00 (UK Pounds)
