This is an early example in bronze, with a short length of original ribbon. It was the basic gallantry award for front line service and anti-partisan combat personnel and ranks under the Iron Cross, 2nd class, and some 6,500,000 were awarded.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
