    While the ribbon color coding is the same as the Merit cross the ribbon on the Blut & Boden medal is approx 1 3/4" wide where as the ribbon on the Merit cross is approx 1 1/4" wide - the ribbon to the Blut & Boden medal is original to the medal. Somtimes these Blut & Boden medals came with the color of the Land/Gau it was awarded in - its my guess that if the award was for a higher level i.e. reich it was awarded in the national colors(Black/whiite/red)-- Erich - Nice Erbhof , I have seen these in a black metal guess these were used to hang outside on the Bauernhof gates/ entrances rather than somwhere inside like yours would have been used for.

    Horst, my Erbhof sign is made of black cast iron, but the flash of the camera made it look lighter. My sign also has counter sunk screw holes on the reverse to attach outdoors to a farm gate. Best, Erich

    Thanks Erich -

    A little more info relative to this organization: The name of the organization is "Reichsnahrstand"(National Food Estate) established in 1933 by Walter Darre, their motto was "Blut & Boden" i.e. like the Hitler youth motto was "Blut & Ehre",RAD was "Arbeit Adelt" etc. the organization incorporated all functions related to food production.
    Hope this helps
