    I picked up this large crucifix from Salvation this morning. It was laying on the shelf with the other silverware in the housewares section. I was surprised at how heavy it was. At 210 grams it's just under 1/2 a pound. It's fairly large too measuring 6 3/4" x 3 3/4". It also was completely black. A little creme polish for the stubborn spots and my polishing cloth. What a difference ! I was able to remove the corpus as it's only attached with one tiny screw and clean each separately. The cross is quite soft and bends easily. Putting the the corpus back is what keeps everything solid and aligned. I think this is silver and not plate from the way it cleaned up although it's not marked anywhere. No country or hallmarks just the number "280" on each piece. It has small nail holes on each arm of the cross so maybe it was mounted on a wooden staff to be carried down the church aisle at Mass. There's a small nick out of the shell design at the bottom, but not too noticeable. -Mike-

      Thanks surf :)....it sure polished up like silver but I don't know. It's heavy like lead but still so shiny after removing the black tarnish. Doesn't ring like a silver coin either so I''m still wondering.
