Maker marked '55' on ring. Clean example with good paintwork. Some tarnish to silver frame. Short piece of modern replacement ribbon. This was the standard gallantry award of the German armed forces in WW2.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
