    Hey guys,

    Just wondering what the value would be of such an item? It appears to be in exceptional shape. I can provide some pictures as well.

    **It's a military merit cross with swords** Sorry for the lack of description earlier.

    Original, pinback 1st Class 'War Merit Cross' with swords - between
    $150 and $200 here, without case.

    There are 'early quality', and later zinc types. Lots of repros too...
    Regards,

    If it has 1939 on the reverse it should have a suspension loop and sounds like a War Merit Cross with swords 2nd class and not that valuable sadly! about 20 is run of the mill or am I tight?

    Jock is correct !

    I overlooked this in the the description - My first thought from the title was British
    'Military Cross' ! It is always best to post pictures !

    If it has reverse detail and a 'loop' for suspension, it has to be a
    War Merit Cross 2nd Class in bronze.............!
    These are very common.
    Worth $45 dollars in excellent condition, including it's ribbon.
    Regards,

    It sounds like the medal is 2nd class, which has been said earlier
