    Sorry, but I think the Mother's Cross is bad too? But let's see what others say about it? My concerns are the width of the white border and the reverse.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade, I'm with you on this one, don't like it, compared it to one of mine and they don't match, and that's allowing for manufacturing anomalies

    The writing on the back of the Mothers cross should be engraved in to the back of the cross. From your pic's it looks like they stick out.
    Sorry

    Just a curious onlooker, but do you happen to have a photo of your Mother's Cross that shows the line comparisons? Also, I'm hardly anything of a collector. More like a wishful wannabe, there are so many areas and each one of them is so deep and complex it's a maze trying to get everything figured out. Then, when you've finally got all the RZM markings and models and serial this and that, there's the fakes you have to contend with... I shall digress, bottom line is that even I had red lights flashing when I saw the picture, but oh well, it's a rather common thing.

    I think it's bad too. My Mothers Cross has sharper points to the areas marked on pic and the blue section of enamel at the marked area is thicker that the white enamel on either side of it, which is not the case with this cross. The gaps between the words around swastika are also slightly out. If the writing on the rear is indeed raised then there can be no doubt. Regards Thomas
