Very nice, a battered Mutterkreuz missing some enamel was one first few TR items i bought!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Likewise, with a silver one and it was one of the first good items I bought. Cost £9. Still have it of course.

Being so readily available and reasonably priced I'm sure many of us started off with these awards.
And one of the best designs of the third reich imo i just love the two colour enamel.
When I read about the privileges that came with being awarded the cross, I think that hooked me on the hobby more than having the actual piece. But, it made a great conversation starter to those I showed it to, and looking into the meaning and history of the piece led to more interesting history. I have many more examples of Third Reich artifacts now, but this facet of my collecting hasn't changed a bit.
