    Hi all,

    I like when I find in my study boxes with the stuff what I don’t remember to have.

    Here is next this kind a item – Combatant’s Cross (Croix du Combattant).

    Is there any special indications to determinate from what period this cross would be; pre or post WW2?

    Like I understand BR indicates material – bronze. Maker mark on the left must be Paris mint?

    Sorry, I am totally "greenhorn" when it comes to French even basic ODMs.

    Regards,

    Timo

    You’re right, a Paris Mint one. Impossible to say if it was made before or after WWII, but you can date it between 1930 and 1962 as after this date, bronze medals were no longer patinated and shine like the sun…

    (…) and shine like the sun…

    Thanks again!

    I saw one in the shop – looks like a cheap toy cross… uakk!

    Oh why most of the ODMs are so bad design, cheap looking nowadays!
