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. )
do you mean that silver? no crown.
very top of my shopping list is a merit cross whit sword and crown. maybe someday whit flames too...
so many different versions...
ok. sorry my english is not that good
they are both "3. kl.m.d.kr." and that second class box says: 2 kl.
I bought them from a reliable seller. if gone unnoticed, are cross and a box connected at some point in shop or seller...? i dont know
By the way, here are my examples of this decoration, including one with the crown & swords combination:
The Bayerisches Militärverdienstkreuz III. Klasse
"By the way, here are my examples of this decoration, including one with the crown & swords combination"
very nice ones!
All good. More crosses will come along to fill their
correct cases. As mentioned in other threads,
I also think these are under-rated.........
