    I agree both variants are fine. There are a couple more with variants to the wording style too

    If these are indeed both accepted variations of the same award, any idea as to why they vary so greatly? I realize that there would be differences between makers, but this different?

    I have another variant. Look at the gaps either side of the 'r' in 'wehrmacht'

    Good observation Tom, where did the theory that the examples with the 't's being crossed all the way through were fake originate from?

    I too had never heard of that and am curious about it now.

    Being a fairly common award there must have been a raft of makers?

    I don't remember all the details anymore, but about 5 yrs back when I started collecting that was what I was told by more than one collector friend.
    If not mistaken I even raised the issue on one or other forum before coming here.
