    Thanks! Are you familiar with why the two crosses are slightly different sizes? Pin is wierd since it has no markings I have not seen unmarked ones?

    I'm not sure on the size. But there are mini and midsize ones. As for the pin the mark is incorrect plus poor enamel.

    The Mutterkreuz does vary in size between makers. As Chris says, there are different sized pieces in terms of miniatures and half sized crosses but neither of yours are a 'small' version, just a minor size difference which is nothing to worry about.

    Here's an image which demonstrates the size differences between the three variant sizes:

    Haha! Thank you!

    Nope, still alive and kicking Ned! Working hard and playing hard. Things calming down now so I can give some more time to the forum and start collecting again.
