St. George Cross - Real or fake?

Recommended Posts

Greetings gentlemen,

As I am not an expert for decorations of the Imperial Russia could someone please tell me if this cross is real or fake?

Unfortunately seller uploaded only one picture, but i have asked him to send me couple of more with better details.

Best regards,

Thank you Paul for your interest!

I have asked for pictures of the reverse, I hope that the seller will send them to me soon. As soon as I get them I will upload them here!

Best regards!

Unfortunately I never got the cross, to cut the long story short the seller tried to trick me.

I'm not even sure if he really had it because when I was asking for more pictures he

said he no longer had a working camera. That made me to believe that he found this

picture somewhere on net or maybe took a photo of a cross that did not belong to him.

So in the end beware of Hungarian "seller" from Subotica (city in northern Serbia) with a cross like this, he's a fraud!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
