ATTENTION: the so called expert Helmut Weitze who operates a room on the 2nd floor of a building in Hamburg (selling illegal 3rd Reich goods) has set himself up as the world wide expert in blessing 3rd badges & medals. He operates his business behind a plain door with a door buzzer and a peep hole similar to the 1920's gangster days in the USA. It is illegal to sell 3rd Reich items in Germany but Weitze gets by by paying the local police to continue to operate. He attends a few USA shows & brings large amounts of cash well above the amount US Customs allows a person to bring to America.

German Mother's Cross In Diamonds Medal


This is a very RARE Mother's Cross in Diamonds.

The medal is gilded with the traditional blue and white enamel. The white center disk has a gilt swastika with 17 diamonds embedded throughout. The reverse has the date of the original issue of the order, 16 Dezember 1938 and a facsimile signature of Adolf Hitler.

The suspension ribbon is much wider than the lower orders, measuring 16mm wide and 65cm long.

The medal measures 36mm by 46mm and it is a two-piece construction.

The condition is excellent.

The Certificate signed by Hitler diamonds presentation  was destroyed in the 1945 fires when Danzig was 95 percent burned.   

Here is a sentiment from the recipient's granddaughter: 

Hello, I just ran across your site with the rare diamond mothers cross. My grandmother was awarded this, she had 13 kids, 11 were boys. It was told to me by my father that it was given to her in his home town of Danzig. I had searched many times trying to find and information regarding this and all I found was the gold silver and bronze crosses. I thought maybe my dad was mistaken when he reported that hers had diamonds in it.   I spoke with my dad and got a lot more information on how my grandmother received that cross.  She was the only one in Danzig and was in the newspaper for it. 

My grandmothers name was Anna Noetzel Sirotzki, born Feb. 23 1894. It was given in Danzig. Now known as Gdansk. If you are a war buff you know about Danzig. The 5 black cars came with the Nazi flags to my dads home, the address was Nr 5 Rammbau Strasse, Danzig. The 2 men presented it were of the Nazi party named, Gauleiter Forsterar and Senatsprasiden Arthur Greiser. They were the highest in charge in the City next to Hitler in Danzig and Poland. My dad said it was a huge presentation and party. The newspapers were there as well.

This is why that cross is so important to my family. And why if I had the money I would buy it. To me it means the world. My father is so excited to finally have confirmation of the cross. He is now 81 yrs old and in poor health but his memory is sharp as a tack.  I wish he had it but it is long gone and your is to much for me to ever afford. It is nice to see that it does desist. I guess I am wondering how you located this rare item? With this being part of my family hermitage I wish I had 5 grand.   Sincerely, Monica W.
