A Stanislas cross without the eagles

Recommended Posts

I wish I had a photo of it, but someone text messaged me with a photo of a St. Stanislas they have to sell that does NOT have the eagles between the cross arms.  Who can tell me about this variety and what time period and relative value it has to a standard Stanislas? It has the cursive SS initials on both center disc sides.  I have looked through my various reference books and cannot find any pictures of them, but KNOW I have seen examples here and there. Please inform. Also, should I be wary of fakes if this one was bought 30 years ago? Red enamel on one side and gold on the other.

My initial thought is that this is not a super rare special class unknown to most, but more likely an example where one or two eagles have fallen off (this happens), and then the remaining have been removed?

Stanies are noted for eagles going walkabouts. In theory it is possible that someone removed the eagles post revolution however i think it is more likely they went AWOL
