    Thanks Wolfspear. I am a little undecide. The swastikas look a little out of shape. Or maybe that is due to the camera angle.

    I know what you mean. I still like it as I have seen worse but there will be someone more knowledgable who can confirm either way

    It looks good, I don't know much about these but everything looks ok about it. I'm not sure about the ribbon, possibly a repro and shouldn't it have a white stripe down the centre?

    Yes it should your right! The ribbon is from something else

    Thanks for posting that example Nick. Note the lack of loops down the edge of the ribbon on the medal that started the thread. I'm sure the ribbon is not period.

    Are you sure about the ribbon? I thought it was correct and the one that Wolfspear has uploaded is from the Deutscher Adlerorden with swords.

    Ribbon is correct for the 3rd class award. Which this one is.

    I think these are supposed to have '.800' or '.835' silver content marks on the rim.
    The medal ribbons should have the stripe as shown on the #2, but the
    higher grades of cross awards do not.

    There were 'crossed swords' varieties too.........

    These can be fairly expensive so be very cautious !
