    Hey, Nick. This is a very interesting cross...haven't seen this on a mutter kreuz. It looks to be not exactly a mobile swastika but a roundel rotated to the left. Not sure why this would have been done intentionally or if it's an oddity of some kind. I'll be very interested to hear what others think and have to say about this!

    Best,
    Adam

    maybe the swas roundel came off and was affixed post war or the assembler was in a hurry to leave that day or even,someone wanted to add their "personal touch" to this one in production,,,whatever it is,,,it is a neat variation.,..

    I've never seen one before, an interesting variation. It would be interesting to find out if there are any signs of it being repaired.

    Hi Adrian

    Apparantly its a result of the placement needle not being in the correct position.
