    Hi Jonno,

    Don't know if this helps, but there is a link at the bottom of the page to Godet made crosses that you can click on.

    Hi John,

    The pour le merite is a fairly rare award although i believe there are a couple for sale on emedals at present. The value varies greatly dependant on a number of factors such as when the order was produced ( these were awarded and manufactured over quite an extended period) the base metal that the award was made from, whether or not it is attributed etc. I think there may be a previous thread regarding these somewhere on the forum. Worth doing a search anyway.

    best wishes

    I could have bought one for 450 when I was 15 years old.....But that kind of money was out of the question at the time...

    Cheers, Ade.
