Miniature Mothers Cross in Gold (Miniatur Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter). The Mother’s Cross was introduced by Adolf Hitler on 16 December 1938 as part of a large propaganda campaign aimed at increasing the birth rate. With the Bronze cross for bearing four or five children, the Silver cross for bearing six or seven children and the Gold cross for bearing eight or more. This is a nice miniature of the bronze grade cross. The miniature is nicely mounted on a mini-bar/clasp, having a functional pin-back device. The miniature is not visible maker marked. Bars like these were forbidden in 1940 and so very rarely encountered. Rare original miniature in good used condition!
