Hi. I am new to the forum and delighted to have found such a wealth of information and interesting posts. I collect mainly WW1 militaria but I have this Spanish Cross KIA which I am sure must be a copy as only 315 were ever issued. However I would be interested in anyone's opinion particulary as to when it might have been made. The weight is 15.1 gms. Thank you.

A very warm welcome to the forum....

The next of kin Spanish Cross is a very rare award (as you say, only 315 awarded) but original examples are made of bronze. This one is certainly a post war fake.... when it was made is anybody's guess.

Thank you for your reply John. I am not disappointed as it cost me nothing, it was amongst my late Uncle's effects which I inherited with some WW1 medals when he died. I am just enjoying the forum immensely.
