Mutterkreuz Bronze & Silver

Article about: Hi all, Just picked up these two Mutterkreuz. The bronze has the original ribbon, which looks in really good condition, and both have paper envelopes. Just need a gold to complete my set

    there more like small dents rather than burst cast bubbles. hey but with the quality of other fake awards you never know. this ones ribbon has stitch holes in it which have joined both sides of the ribbon together up its length to the last 50mm from the cross as if it were worn as a broach.

    Agreed Carl, disappointed as I am, it was a very good experience (at least my bronze MK is good).

    I will talk to the seller, but almost tempted to put the silver in my 'lessons learned' box.

    First the crosses where stamped from base material same like the disc disc put on the cross. Then by hand the enamel was done then in the oven for curing after in the bath and last polished.
    The crosses where hung in a bath where they got there brons /silver or gold alloy and then washed off with water. Same like they do it these days for example chrome plating

    Here are some picture's from a documentary look behind the man holden the crosses there is a bath where they hung into
