    Default Mutter Kreuz Case Question

    Hi, all. I have listed this mother's cross for sale and a question has been raised about the originality of the case. The question is in regards to the text on the case being misspelled with a "J" instead of an I for "Innungen." Another member has seen repro cases marked in this way. I purchased this cross from Militaria-Berlin as all original but I cannot speak to this concern. When purchased, I posted this cross here on the forum with positive feedback, however I cannot find the thread now. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Best,
    Adam

    Perfectly original.

    There is no spelling mistake here. What appears to British or American eyes as a letter "J" is in fact an "I" in German script. Similar use can be found on German dog tags. Easy mistake to make.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This is a Third Reich era way of spelling. Not used today.

    Look at some of the dog tags shown on the forum. Same useage.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I think Militaria Berlin is a trustworthy dealer and wouldn't knowingly let a fake out under their name if it was so obvious.
