    Gold version in case of issue. Only the gold cross was presented in a case, lower grades were awarded in a paper packet.

    Awarded for having 8 or more children.

    A thread here showing the cross in wear:

    Minature bronze version on a ribbow bow. These were an optional private purchase item and were for everyday wear.

    The Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter was a respected decoration. Members of the HJ were required to salute a woman they might pass on the street if she was wearing the award.

    Hi Adrian & Pierre


    I recently sold most of my civil awards, but I still have a Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter in Gold.

    Yeah one of the nicest looking of all the 3rd Reich awards I think, I had a nice collection of these years ago and sold them all off, I sort of regret that now, and am tempted to get a set again, bugger ya Ade, Tempting!!
    (I suppose it is nice to get something for having kids apart from grey hair and worry).

    I did see a 1st pattern Mutterkreuz for sale on one of the militaria sites a couple of months back, I don't remember the price but it made my eyes water at the time, damned expensive, and that is the only one that I have ever seen for sale, a rare critter indeed.

    I have the miniature and wear it occasionally at re-enactment events as seen on these two pictures.
