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.

testimonials

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.

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.
