What a cool looking award! Here we have a 1943 pattern, die struck, zinc based, silver washed 2nd Class Order of the German Eagle. The obverse of the round award features a centrally placed embossed Maltese style cross, with four national eagles to each corner of the cross. The reverse reads: "Deutsche Verdienst Medaille" (German Merit-Medal). The ring is marked ?30” (Hauptmunzamt). Attached to the ring is approximately 1 1/2 inches of red, black and white rayon ribbon. Stitched to the top of the ribbon is a steel well-working pin. A great example purchased from Vet’s nephew by me.
We would recommend that you read our Policies page before making a purchase.
