The cross and ribbon are both good. If you look at the KVK ribbons on the forum you will see they all have the white edge so nothing to worry about.
Regarding the maker, very difficult to tell if it's unmarked. They are so difficult to tell unlike EKs because they are all so very similar unless anyone fancies a go at mapping and identifying pebbling patterns or sword handles..................?
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Very nice piece.
A lovely example! As Adrian says these are difficult to name the maker
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
nice clean one.
Never noticed a white thread going down through the black on one of these before.
nice cross though well done!
Very nice Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2.Klasse mit Schwertern.
Thanks, friends, for your opinions.
