    Hello. I may purchase this mothers cross if it looks ok to the group. It comes with an NSDAP armband that I will post in the correct forum. The armband, in my opinion, is questionable so now I'm curious about this Mothers cross. Thank you for any info!

    This is a fake one, as evidenced by the raised lettering on the backside. Genuine crosses had an incused inscription.

    That makes sense. Now that you mention it, I've only had ones with "engraved" words never raised. Thank you!

    Are they really faking Mother Crosses ? They are so (relatively) cheap, hardly seems worth the effort to me.

    Also, the corner rays of the gold sunburst do not extend further than the other rays. The four corners of genuine mother crosses should extend beyond the rays on the sides.

    Completely agree. A fake cross for the reason stated.
