    There is also a N.S.B.O. armband with paper tag, and a repro SS eagle......, too bad for the eagle!

    The spange looks ok, any chance of a shot of the reverse?

    The medal is a bronze Medal of Merit with swords, a later version as it has the larger ribbon ring. I dont know much about these though. Is there a makers mark on said ring?
    Its a civil award and normal qualification for this would be 2 years of continuous employment with excellent performance in their field of work or the recipient should have made some special contribution which had significantly enhanced the German war effort

    Also keep in mind that the Verdienstorden vom Deutschen Adler-related decorations were intended for foreigners and not Germans.

    I am a little concerned now, ..... i just spoke to my Father-in-law, he said he thought he remembered hearing something back in the 70's , that if the "1" and or the "3" touched the bottom border, that it was a repro....... he can not recall for sure.... any other opinions on this Spange?

    Well, i just got the Spange, finally........... and i was so disappointed i could not wait to take pics in natural light, ......i am 99.99999% sure this is a fake !!!! My only hope is that the spange is real, but someone did a horrible attempt at putting new pins on, i can totally see the soder !!!!! Also, the poor quality in the L/11 stamping along with the fact it is off center slightly.......here are the pics..................
