German WWII War Merit Medal- A handsome example with correct, original ribbon. 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. There are a few spots of discoloration on the reverse, but overall, this is a very good example.
