I was invited to look at part of an old collection and see if there were any items I might be interested in. There were about 60 items on the table. On my initial pass I saw this cross as a fake. Enamel in all of the belt buckle, bronze base metal showing, one sided swords and no markings. As we chatted I took a second look and noticed the L is on top of the enamel not in it. It also looks like the lion on the back was separately applied. When I saw this I decided it should come home with me for further investigation. I am now wondering if this isn’t an extremely early production piece. Any thoughts? Are there others here that have similar examples?

That's right. These crosses were made for the production of medal bars. In this case from the manufacturer Godet. They were not awardet. The price is equal as the lent.

Thanks for the information. I’ll keep it in my case as a neat variation. I’m glad I bought it!

How is it attributed to Godet?  Which Godet, J. Godet or Gebr. Godet?

This crosses were be offered since 1917 by W. Godet & Sons, Berlin.
Here a MVO with the same swords.
