Here we have a Bronze Cross of Honour of the German Mother with its packet! These crosses were introduced by decree in Berlin on 16 December 1938 by Chancellor of Germany (Reichskanzler) Adolf Hitler. These were awarded to mothers for exceptional merit to the German nation, who conceived and raised four to five children and exhibited probity, exemplary motherhood. This two piece award is constructed out of a die struck bronze base that has been bronze washed and includes blue, black and white enamel work. The obverse is in the form of a Christian cross and shows; a centrally place black static swastika above a white base, that is surrounded by "Der Deutschen Mutter" (The German Mother) and is in front of a sunburst pattern. The full back reverse shows a recessed: "16. December 1938" along with two styles of Hitler's facsimile signature. The enamel work is rough remaining 90%+ intact. The cross measures approximately 1 13/16 inches tall by 1 7/16 inches wide. It also comes with stitched blue and white rayon ribbon that is approximately 1 ½ inches long. An inexpensive option!
