Article about: Just a quick question. This award was hotly debated about a decade or so ago, as it appeared in Angolia's book, but has it ever been definitively answered if this award ever actually Existed

    Lest anybody believe that I take the item on the Snyder site seriously:

    Adrian said he'd never even seen a fake or fantasy Mutterkreuz with diamonds.

    So I showed him where he could finally see one.
    Dont worry Andreas, no one would have thought that ! Certainly not from you !

    It Is, however, spoken of in Angolia's book, for what it's worth, so...did Crooked Charlie get the idea from the book? Or other way around? Who knows? William

    Yes and my eyes are still hurting. Now I remember why I don't visit 'Ole Charlie's site very much!

    I have a feeling a Mutterkreuz with diamonds is more of an urban legend than most of these suspect high end awards. At least most of them come with some evidence they were thought about and designed etc. I don't think the same can apply to the Mutterkreuz with diamonds....... unless anyone can prove otherwise?
    Is there any period evidence on paper the award was being instituted, designed, perhaps just mentioned briefly in the smoking shelter........?
