The r is very smal in both these OM's Sveimhugi compared to Steinars OM.
If so then yes it may be a little smaller But IMO thats "ok", they all vary a little bit, but the main features like the:
..soft unclear leaves on the back, some hollow, other half filled.
..the much bigger "42" in 1941/42.
..the dark patina and more
Thats just my opinion, ofc you be the judge
Then comparison times please the two medals.
This is the same design!
Believe me, it's a. 13
Kriegsverdienstkreuze also have this error in the 1
But anyone can believe what he thinks is right .
