I found out that the "cross and crown" badge is a trade mark of the Church of Christ Scientist, founded in 1866 by Mary Baker Eddy.
To use the badge requires permission from the holder of the trademark.
Did Russel buy the right from them to use it?
Did Russel sell the right to use it?
In any case it is the same symbol used by the Babble Students.
What connection is there between all these mid 19th century sects? Maybe their founders all knew each other.
In ant case I find it uncanny that the contemporary bible students litterature is presentd almost identically to the WTBCS. Even down to choice of cover art.
Maybe Malcolm R's descendants are secretly raking it in - Ole Booze knew enough about the law to cover his own and the WT tracks
