George Cross Replica with ribbon

The George Cross or ‘GC’ as it is affectionately known is the highest award that a civilian can get. It is also sometimes awarded to military personnel for an act for which military honours would not normally come into play. This is a handsome replica, as only 157 real ones have been issued since its inception in 1941. You have St. George and the dragon in the middle of a cross with ‘For Gallantry’ round the centre. King George VI’s cipher is in the angles. There is a bar that has ornamented laurels and the ribbon is a dark blue. These replicas are stamped ‘Copy’ on the reverse so no one could confuse them with originals. An original will sell for between £8,000 and £12,000. So even if you could find one, you might not be able to afford it… This handsome replica is large and heavy, just like the original but priced so that most collectors can afford it.
