    Default Kriegsverdienstkreuz II.Klasse mit Schwertern - buffed with a vengeance

    Hi Everyone,

    Here is an unmarked and fairly "new-ish" KVK2 that was accompanied by an original issue packet (marked "F. Jungwirth Wien 62" on the back, but I have no idea if it is original to this medal) and a very nice section of original ribbon from who knows where. Given the source, I don't doubt the originality but it is another example of my magnetism for pieces with odd workmanship.

    The pebbling in the arms of the cross on the reverse side make the medal appear to have been buffed, buffed again, and then buffed just to make sure! I am all too familiar with the compulsion to give a piece of brass or bronze "just one more hit" on the wheel, and had I been in some workshop during the war cranking out these awards, they'd probably ALL look like the back of the right arm of this cross.



    Best regards,

    G. Kelly

    The bent ribbon ring are normal in the KVK2.

    I was actually wondering a bit about the large number of KVK2's with bent rings, because I keep seeing them... even on otherwise beautiful examples.
