    Default Ehrenkreuz der Deutsche Mutter Dritte Stufe, genuine or not?

    Does anyone know of a good thread on spotting a fake Mother's Cross? I would love to collect a set and already bought this bronze below, but after reading some threads and looking at some of the fakes, I am not sure I ended up with a good one.

    Will you take a look and give me some feedback, please? I had a little blur on the first image.

    This example is an original. You need to look at the long points on the "rays" as fakes are more blunt. Also look through the blue enamel, you should see a texture beneath it.

    When starting a thread in the Orders and Decorations section of the forum, please read these two threads and keep them in mind.

    I see no issues with this one, a nice clean original. Leon.

    Hello,
    that is a really nice original bronze cross with a lovely patina to it and an original piece of ribbon.

    Ralph points out what some reproductions look like and it is true quite a few have more blunted rays than originals but the more I study these crosses the more I am inclined to think that there were quite a few made post 1945.

    I started my original research and it just keeps on getting bigger.
    I currently have a list of 83 makers of all classes of the MK
    Here is the link below:

    All the best
