    hi hal very nice items there, i think the case with the silver cross on top is for just that the silver mutters kreuz? the silver cased awards seem scarce? i think the cross thats in it is from the wrong box? never seen a ribbon like that before ? jmo

    Thanks Ewan, the cross shows up as silver in the photo but is actually gold. The box to this medal shows a lot of wear and I'm guessing the ribbon is possibly a period replacement.

    The silver version of the Mutterkreuz never came in a case, just an envelope.

    The crosses and cases are nice examples, the beige ribbon is obviously a replacement, when it was replaced is anyone's guess. The weave doesn't look like the normal type usually found on ribbons from that period though.
