Article about: I like it Rod. These are highly sought after by Mutterkreuz collectors. I've been looking for another for a long time. Here's a similar one from my collection:

    Default Ehrenkreuz der Deutsche Mutter broach

    Hi guys i would like to hear your opinions on this little broach.
    Apparently it was found at the bottom of a box of British campaign medals bought at an auction and was the only German item in it.
    It was offered to me for £8 so i couldn’t resist taking a wee chance with it.
    Have any of you guys seen or got a cross like this or is it a well made fantasy piece.
    Again thanks for your opinions
    Rod

    It is not a fantasy piece i am pretty certain of that. IMO it is original, the brooch was an added addition by the recipient for everyday wear. A steal for £8!
    Thanks, Glen.

    Nice catch with a nice catch methinks!

    I must admit it looked good to me , you cant really see in the pictures but it has the graining behind the blue enamel. Unfortunately the centre disk is slightly of centre though.
    Again its another thing that i cant seem to find another example of which is why i questioned it.
    Thanks

    I agree with Nick.
    I believe the brooch pin was added before the finish was put on.
    I am keeping my eyes open, would love to find a silver with this attachment method.

    I see you have very nice mothers cross’s Ralph they are a very attractive award indeed. Congrats.
    You are correct it has had its finish applied after it was attached to the pin.
    When you say you would like to find a silver award with this type of attachment. I was wondering do have a bronze and a gold with this type of attachment already.
    Best regards

    Hello Rod, Thanks for your compliment!
    No, I do not have any with this attachment method. It is just that my grandmother was awarded the silver and finding one would go nicely with the full size and miniature silver that I have from her.

    I understand now Ralph
    I cant find another like this anywhere but they must exist somewhere.
    I hope very much that you find a silver one for your set. And hope it comes soon.
    All the best
