Title War Merit Cross, 2nd Class, 1939 (swords)
Nationality German
Period c 1939-45
Sold

This was the medal for gallantry awards deemed not to merit the award of the Iron Cross, 2nd class. This is a mid-war example in bronzed zinc. Typically, these were often given for partisan actions in Poland, Russia and the Balkans. It has most of its bronze finish and a short, but clean piece of original ribbon.

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
