    Default Kriegsverdienst Medaille ( war merit medal)

    Hello forum! Got this in the post the other day. An under appreciated medal that really shows well in person IMO, even if quite common. This one is made of a tombak or brass alloy of some sort.

    I'm not sure about the packet though. I read they're supposed to be blue, and this one doesn't look like it ever was. If correct and proper for the medal, it makes it my first piece of Assmann . The junior high boy in me snickers every time with this maker.

    A+!!! With the packet as well!!!

    The lowest grade but still one to complete the KvK collection. I picked up my first just a short time ago. Was always looking for the 1st or 2nd class and neglected this one.

    A nice award! and relatively easy and cheap to collect a set (excluding the RK of course)

    The medal and ribbon is original but the packet looks like a modern reproduction.

    But the packet should not be blue.

    What's the giveaway on reproduction packets that we should look for?
