Issued by the German State of Bavaria, this military merit cross comes with Swords! The medal is tombak based, die struck and bronze washed. The obverse depicts a centrally placed stylized "L" below a crown all on a smooth backing. This is then surrounded by a white belt that reads "Merenti". This is on a pebbled cross and below tow crossed broad swords. The reverse has a centrally placed lion and reads "1866". Beautiful bronze wash remains! Wonderful piece with 6" of post-war replacement ribbon!
