The West Wall Medal (German: Deutsches Schutzwall-Ehrenzeichen) was a political decoration of Nazi Germany. It was instituted on 2 August 1939 and was given to those who designed and built the fortifications on Germany's western borders, known as the West Wall or, in English, the Siegfried Line, and to the troops who served there between 15 June 1938 to 31 March 1939. In all 622,064 medals were awarded until 31 January 1941. In 1944, after the allied invasion, it was again "re-instituted" and awarded to those who took part in the fortification of the western borders. It was awarded to over 800,000 men in total by the end of the war.

The medal was designed by Professor Richard Klein, of Munich. The medal was in one class. It was struck in bronze. Its oval shape featured on the obverse (from bottom to top) a bunker, a crossed sword and shovel, and the German Eagle. On the reverse it bore the inscription "Für Arbeit zum Schutze Deutschlands" (For Work on the Defenses of Germany).

The original new-like grosgrain ribbon is golden brown with a white stripe towards each edge. The issue packet for this West Wall Medal is constructed out of Manila paper and it in perfect condition. Printed across the front of the envelope are the words “Deutsches Schutzwall-Ehrenzeichen.” On the reverse is the name of the maker, “Carl Poeliaht.”

This item ships from a smoke-free, climate controlled environment to the United States.
