    Looks ok. Features are not as sharp as others i have come across but could be a makers variation?

    Try to weigh the cross. I have read that a original cross should have a weight of 12-13 gram (0.42-0.45 oz), but I dont know if its true.
    My original weighs 13 gram


    Edit: After comparing to Ralphs picture and my own Mutterkreuz I've now changed my mind.

    The cross in the first post doesnt look at all as mine and Ralphs. I totally agree with the things Ralph.

    The cross looks OK to me but the swastika is a bit off set / askew. I'm sure that more members will give their opinion on the originality
    Yes sometimes the swas does rotate as in this example

    I believe this one is a copy.
    The points on the "rays" are too rounded and I can't see any details in the blue enamel. There is more borders on the arms than there is white enamel also. The borders on the swastika are too heavy as well.
    Compare with this one and you will see what I mean.
