    Not quite. The Deutsche Verdienstmedaille [German Medal of Merit] (as seen here) had a silver and a bronze grade only.

    It was the medal associated with the Deutscher Adlerorden [German Eagle Order] of which Henry Ford was bestowed the Gro▀kreuz [Grand Cross].

    Other U.S. recipients of the DAO were the famous aviator Charles Lindbergh, James D. Mooney (President of General Motors Overseas) and Thomas J. Watson (chairman and CEO of IBM).
