    They both look really nice to me. Took me forever to the War Merit Medal even though it is the lowest grade. Always had my sight on the War Merit Crosses.

    The War Merit Medal looks like it sat out for display in direct sunlight for a number of years. But still good condition. The War Merit Cross 1st class w/o sword looks nice as well.

    Nice pick ups.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Michael thank you for looking. I happened to buy something non military and the guy had these and sold them to me for what I believe to be a very good price . Gary

    Steve is right. And I was wrong. In looking at it again a bit more closely, the block hinge as well as the L/15 stamp looks bad. Post Steve's great observation, I remembered a Flock fake I had for another badge with the same hinge set up. Couldn't find it but did a bit of digging here and found a twin I think (of which Steve is referring to).

    Sorry for my mistake.
