    The minatures both appear to be post war 57 awards. The iron cross has the oak splay and the dates 1939 whilst the WMC shows the date 1939 also. If pre 1945 I would expect a swastica instead of the oak leaves on the EK and instead of the date on the WMC. In short at best I think the bar is war time manufacture with post war medallions attached to jazz it up. I addition I think the ribbon is for the war merit medal as opposed to the war merit cross.

    I agree with Roger's synopsis. The two miniatures are for the 1957 awards and the ribbons are for an Imperial EK2 and for a Kriegsverdienstmedaille, in which case I wouldn't expect to see a Kriegsverdienstkreuz mounted upon it.

    I suggest it is a put together piece and therefore I would not be spending any money on it.
    Best Regards,

    Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
