Item Description

After years with an online auction company we have decided to expand our sales to iOffer, having spent the last 12+ years with that auction company, and even though we have a 100% positive feedback, with their ever increasing fees and restrictions on what can be listed we are trying something new, so here goes…. We offer for your consideration this very impressive original WW2 German Das Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter, or Honor Cross of the German Mother, with the named award and photograph of the recipient. The cross was awarded to Walburga Steidl, geb. Lorenz in Lauterbach Stadt. The Mothers cross, according to the reference book Medals and Decorations of the Third Reich by Dr. Heinrich Doehle, Berlin 1943, was awarded in 3 classes, as follows, 3 rd class for 4 or 5 children, 2 nd class for 6 or 7 children, and 1 st class for 8 or more children. This is the 3rd class for 4 or 5 children. The medal is in very excellent condition with original full length ribbon and no damage whatever to the enameling on the cross. The award document is signed by the Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler Auto Pen facsimile and Head of the Reich Chancellery, Otto Meissner, also an Auto Pen facsimile. Included is a photograph of the recipient, the entire grouping has been professionally mated and framed, and has an excellent presentation factor. The items are not mounted in such a way as to be accessible, but can be removed from the frame with no damage due to the way they are mounted should you ever desire to do so. Here is your chance to own an original artifact from one of the most turbulent times in history. If you have any questions or need additional photos I will be glad to provide anything I can.
