    This is the Militaer-Sanitaetzkreuz. It was awarded to those who demonstrated exemplary service in the care of wounded soldiers.

    It is German.

    This medal is outside my competency as far as determination as to originality, but I would be surprised if it were heavily faked. It should be made of bronz-plated zinc.

    I am not certain, but I don't think the ribbon is original. It should be almost completely red with two white stripes.
