That is an interesting find. Did it ever have the piece at the top for the ribbon?

Here is a link showing some different pinbacks.

If you look closely at the upper arm, you can see what appears to be very small rises on it's relief. If it was done at the factory, I would image the top of the upper arm would be totally flush. Good job none-the-less and an interesting piece.

All things considered, the mothers cross is an attractive award. Still affordable to collect. The gold and silver awards really like nice when thier gilt/wash is intact.
