[B]Unfortunatly there is no list even for the Romanian pilots....

Partial lists exist. I worked for a while on it, but abandoned for lack of available time. Essentially one needs to go through the Monitorul Oficial each month from 1930 to 1947. I could not find all those months in one place and abandoned the work, but maybe someone at the Air Force Museum continued. They already had a rather large list when I started.

Hi aviatiadasenzatia :D

Many thanks for that, hopefully this will warn others

to be weary about dealing with such a seller of fakes.

I did not bid on it.

Sorry guys but ww2ro's gold cross is original.
I am the winner of the auction and I am not dissapointed with the cross I received. The pictures are really bad, it's true, but the item meets the expectations. I can see Lavrillier's signature on the reverse shield, just under the right wing. The cross is made of gilted bronze so oxidation is still possible. Too bad that the ring was "bumped".

Hi Iulian, I have no doubt that is a genuine one! At least I would buy it without hesitation.

Thanks for your answer.

But tell me if you can why the middle is black and not white or blue as usual ?


Thank you.

Iulian.

Iulian, sorry I have no explanation for that, I have seen both colors on original ones. I can only speculate that the color is different because of various jewelers. Once again, is just a supposition not a proven fact.
