    I picked up this Military Merit Cross 2nd Class (Mecklenburg-Schwerin) this morning...I've always liked these and have been on the lookout for quite a while, and it will look great in my collection-display after I add an original ribbon...

    I have one without the red/yellow stribes on the ribbon. The ribbon is like the 1870 version of the medal. But the cross is still stamped 1914. Anyone who knows why the ribbon is 1870 and the medal 1914?

    Oh, yes. Here is a picture. It was bought in the 50-ties by an old collector and then sold on to me. The ribbon is silk and it is parade mounted.
    Ohhh Very difficult to upload pics on these pages it seems.... Anyway, you should understand the pattern, if you know the 1870 and 1914 version.
    Hope to get a suggestion from another collector of 1750-1918 German medals.
