    Hi

    What are your opinions on this War Merit Cross 2nd Class?

    And is that corrosion on the cross or just where the bronze finish has worn off?

    Thanks

    It's a good one. I would say that "corrosion" makes it look pretty cool!

    It's a mixture of aging and patina. It's a nice cross.

    That is a mint, unissued cross and most probably still retaining the original factory lacquer. There is no corrosion or patina, just the original finish.

    Adrian is correct. It's a mint original KVKII with it's original toned finish intact.

    In the 'old days' when medals were made of pure silver, people used to polish
    them to make them shine - but these do not need any type of treatment
    like that ! Just keep it dry and stored/displayed in a regulated
    environment, and it will last for centuries.........

    Unfortunately if it's unmarked then it's nearly impossible to tell.
