WW2 Greek Cross of Valour-Third Grade?

Recommended Posts

Hi Gents

I have recently acquired the illustrated medal. There appear to be several types of these crosses, some with 2 part crowns,some with holes in the crown etc. There also appear to be differing bars with 1940 on them. Could you give me your opinions on this with regards to WW2 authenticity please, and maybe show different versions you might have with regards to makers etc and highlight any differences.

Cheers

Dave

Hi,

That's an original silver Cross of Valour with 1940 clasp. It's of greek manufacture.

Follows a boxed gold Cross of Valour manufactured by Godet.

The crown of the Godet version is hinged and holed.

Very nice Igor, your first cross(Spinks) is very similar to my cross.  I am afraid my pictures are no where as crisp as all the other others provided. I must congratulate you and Nikos on your photography.
