    If you were entitled to wear the Mutterkreuz then yes. You would be awarded a standard cross in an envelope for bronze and silver and gold one would be cased.
    If you didn't want to wear the full sized cross on an everyday basis there there a plethora of miniatures and half size variants on brooches, bows, chains that you could purchase privately, as long as you proved your entitlement.
    I believe on special occasions, Mothers Day ceremonies for example, you had to wear your full size cross on a ribbon round the neck.

    Not entirely sure on that, I don't know if it was mandatory or personal choice. I would expect though that if the cross had been awarded, it would've been proudly worn in some form or other. I believe members of the Hitler Youth were required to salute a Mutterkreuz wearer if they passed on the street etc and were expected to afford these ladies all courtesy and respect.

    Yes it did, 'L' marked EKs were almost certainly private purchase, the same for badges, stickpins, miniatures.
