Nazi MOTHER CROSS MEDAL EXTREMELY RARE 1st TYPE Silver Class
[med1177]

Nazi Mother Cross  Silver Class c/w Ribbon for neck wear.

Awarded annually on 12th August (Hitler's Mother's Birthday) to mothers who produced 8 or more children in recognition of the substantial importance a woman's role and motherhood was in support of a strong Deutsches Reich nation. A Miniature version of the order was awarded also for everyday use, along with a cash reward and a certificate.

The Cross of Honor of the German Mother was introduced by decree in Berlin on 16th December 1938 by the Chancellor Adolf Hitler.

To the ordinary man in the street it was commonly known as 'The Order of the Rabbit' (KANINCHENORDEN).

The cross design was the creation of the established Munich based architect and sculptor Franze Berberich.  The production of the cross involved several established Prasidialkanzlei (Presidential Chancellery) approved medal makers from across the Deutsches Reich realm.  A maker's mark, however, was never applied to the crosses produced;  though each official house of manufacture did apply their name to the dark blue presentation case (inside cover) for the 1st Class Gold Cross and the presentation saches (reverse side) for each of the 2nd and 3rd Class Cross.

The cross design is a slender elongated form of the Iron Cross or cross pattee and very similar in design to the Cross of the Teutonic Knights Order. 

Obv : Enamelled translucent blue with a slim opaque-white border.  Resting on the centre radiant starburst rays is a metal roundel decorated with the words 'DER DEUTSCHN MUTTER' (of the German Mother) around an enamelled black straight centered swastika symbol, infilled white enamel.

There are two official  reverse side styles which exist, the 1st Vesion being 'Das Kind adelt die Mutter' (The Child ennobles the Mother) found on the initial version produced on inception during the early part of 1939.

The 2nd Version being the Inscription 16th December 1938 together with Chancelor Adolf Hitlers Facimile signature.

This Medal Reverse is the  EXTREMELY RARE  1st early 1939 type.

The Medal and Ribbon are in good condition but with some signs of wear to enamel on medal.     Unknown Provenance
