It's fine. Although your terminology is wrong, these didn't come in class's.
Aside from the flaws already mentioned it is an original piece but these common medals are readily available at a low price, complete and in good condition so this is an item with very very little value.
(I amended the title too as Hagen is correct, there is no second/first classes of the 1914/18 Ehrenkreuz.)
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
A missing ring and ribbon is sort of a major thing, IMO.
These are so common and relatively inexpensive that
it's not worth the purchase, really.........
