    I've always liked these - especially the silver/enamel grade.
    ( The one in the center etui is supposed to have
    a crown ? Pics do not enlarge. )

    What he means is that the case in the middle is actually for a 3rd class cross with crown (the lid says "3. Kl. m. d. Kr." = "3. Klasse mit der Krone"), but contains a 3rd class cross with swords.

    Yes, apparently the crosses and boxes were joined somewhere along the line of previous owners/dealers.

    By the way, here are my examples of this decoration, including one with the crown & swords combination:

    The Bayerisches Militärverdienstkreuz III. Klasse

    All good. More crosses will come along to fill their
    correct cases. As mentioned in other threads,
    I also think these are under-rated.........
