I've got no problems with the medal or packet, all looks good. The medal is a zinc piece and the finish has unfortunately faded into the base metal over time but otherwise a typical piece in 'sleeper' condition.
There is no way to tell if the medal and packet belong together as there is no makers mark but you have two original pieces and that's what matters!
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Thanks Adrian,Regards Paul.
Adrian has already said everything.
But the medal is not a piece of Ferdinand Wiedmann.
This manufacturer had no rays in the plumage.
You have a photo of a genuine Wiedmann?
