There are slight variations in Quality, but I think which ones are "nicest" are mostly dependant on the collectors personal taste, so it would be hard to work that in...

Blitz was collecting stats...

Agreed--I got involved in that argument on that other forum.

IMHO there was sure to be a difference in Quality. The Army set a standard of quality control for issue crosses, but this is as always a minimum quality that must be reached. There was nothing stopping a company of being "that bit better"...

It can mean that company JJ made an effort on the detail of the corps... or they changed their dies rather than continuing producing with worn out dies, or did a nicer thicker ring etc. etc....

All knives cut, but some look better than others....

Totally agree with you.

Anyone who has held some of these crosses in hand

can easily see and feel the difference. But as I found,

this is very subjective as some people don't have a

sense of humor (or style or taste)

Check out these two.... and they are from the same company.... can anyone say they are the same quality and keep a straight face?


Surely the quality is different. I believe because of different dies. The fine detail in one that is not in the other shows the difference in die quality. If that is not a possible reason then I put forth one was made in the morning and the other made later in the afternoon, based on the known fact that germans have 5-10 flippys with their lunch. Prost!!!! :beer::lol:

    • 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.
