I just asked the same question a few hours ago if you go to my last post shot in the dark all will be explained
Really wow, ok thanks. Yours look a little different that mine, don't know if that matters or not.
No problem good day to you sir.If you go to page two of the post Adrian explains the diffrence between mine and the ones that you are showing with the crossed swords

Your medals are Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1st and 2nd class. The pin back being the first class. Both are made from zinc, hence the poor looking finish. The first class award is made by Wilhelm Deumer if the makers mark is indeed '3'. The second class will be marked on the ribbon ring if any mark is to be found, if not then it's nigh on impossible to identify it.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Thanks Adrian, I'll look on the ring and see...taking a closer look on the second class, its looks like a 4 on the ring.
Thanks again Adrian!
It now sits with the ribbon which you suggested, well the one anyway.
