An excellent looking early 1939 War Merit Medal! It is constructed out of a die struck tombak base that has been bronze washed. The round obverse features an embossed war merit cross without swords. The reverse reads: “Für Kriegs-Verdienst 1939” (for outstanding services in war 1939). To the top is a soldered loop and ring which is to hold 11 ¼ inches of unissued red, white and black ribbed rayon ribbon. A beautiful example with a long ribbon!
