    What are everyone's thoughts about replacing the ribbon with a new piece for display, keeping the old of course?

    I would leave it as is, im more concerned about the strange damage to the cross, it looks like it has been bent at the two points and the enamelling has cracked, is there signs of damage on the reverse

    No. that's the fishing line holding the medal in place, as opposed to using glue to the reverse.

    Yes keep it as it is, it looks great displayed like that in the shape of an 'M' for Mutter

    LOL, know what you mean.
    Yeh, was going to keep it as is, like the fact it tells a story with the blood stain etc.

    FYI: the frame came from Tescos, they have four different sizes and all have a 9mm depth that is ideal for medal display, this one was 4.00, comes in wood as well as black.

    Very nice display Keep it the way it is. The stains are a part of the story.

    Another vote for leaving it as it is. Perhaps you could widen the ribbon at the top and add a mini on a bow in the space to fill up the display area?
