I've just purchased these two Faithfull Service Crosses, with cases - a 25 year and a 40 year. Both crosses are in great condition with frosting and enamel intact.
Any comments welcome - thanks for looking.

Regards
Russell

Thanks for looking - are there many differences between medals by different makers?

They look very nice from what I can see. Now you need the 50Yr.

In answer to you question, I don't really know. In theory, if they were made by different makers then there should be slight differences between their crosses. I don't know if anyone has carried out research on these yet.

Cheers
Don

Hello, Russell! I have the twin to your 25 yr. cross, same maker! I think these are neat and the quality is excellent, not to mention they're relatively cheap! I only paid $60 for mine, of course that was about 5 yrs ago. Regards, teufel

Thanks for the comments and the links.
I agree teufel, these are relatively in-expensive and great looking medals. To get them in original cases is also a plus. I've always liked the look of these but had never bought any before - now I need to find the 50 year to make the set.

Does anyone know how many, and who the various makers are for these awards? It would be good to see pics of other makers of these awards posted here as well.

Regards
Russell

I can be of little assistance, my cased 25 is not marked. My cased 40 is also by Deschler & Sohn Munchen. My 50 is sans case.

I have rarely seen a 50 year Don how common are they? I myself do really like these medals very elegant design IMHO. I have owned many 25 and 40 years but only have one left and it is unmarked.

They don't turn up every day, especially cased, I must admit. There's usually one or two floating about at any one time.

Cheers

Don, three outstanding examples! Very Nice! Question: Did the 25 yr. cross ever come in the fancy hard, hinged case or was it relegated to the cardboard "box"? Regards, teufel

Teufel,

Thanks. It only came in the cardboard version as far as I know. There is a design variant though, you can find them with a slightly different style circle around the 25.

Cheers
Don

Very nice set of cased medals Don. Can you show the top of the case for the 50 year?

Also, do you know which maker has the design variant for the 25 year - do you have any pics of that one also?

Regards
Russell

Let's see some more Faithfull Service Crosses - probably nearly any member here would have at least one - cased or not!

Russell,

Reading my post again, I probably wasn't very clear. When I say that there was a design variant I mean with the box for the 25yr. There is an extra line in the cogwheel surrounding the number.

Here's the top of my 50yr box as requested.

Cheers
Don

Thanks for the pic Don.

Lakesidetrader has a couple of 25 year medals with the variant on the case that you mention. One is a Souval and the other is not maker marked. They are both slightly different to each other as well.

Russell
