German WWII War Merit Medal-This medal is in very good condition with a nice finish and good details. It has a portion of original ribbon which is significantly faded. This was awarded to recognize service by civilians, both German and non-German, in connection with the war effort and was mostly awarded to people working in war factories. It is in bronze with a design of the War Merit Cross on the obverse and the inscription “Für Kreigs Verdienst 1939”, “For War Merit 1939”, on the reverse. A nice vintage looking example.
