    Hello, i saw this cross at a auction site and wondered if it's real or not, and if it is what would be a fair price for it?
    I've seen the award before but in bronze and in silver but with a enamelled center. My knowlegde about bavarian medals isn't great so any help would be very appreciated.

    Bavarian Military Merit Cross 3rd Class with swords and crown around $150...But you should be able to negotiate a lower price as the ribbon is in bad shape and detached from the parade mount...
    cheers, Glenn

    Those made of silver with an enamelled center are MVK (Militärverdienstkreuz) 2nd Class, which are also more valuable and expensive. Besides that exist even gilded 1st Class, but they are not too often to be seen.

    There is a great thread to the Bavarian MVK 3rd Class: The Bayerisches Militärverdienstkreuz III. Klasse
