    Thanks Eric. What was it awarded for?

    Hi Pablo from what I understand the decoration was issued in three classes and was awarded for a wide variety of services to the German state. And was also issued for lesser degrees of civil service, not warranting the higher presentation of a class award. The main requirement for the award was that the service rendered should be to the benefit of the civil population.

    Now that is a good question! I've not come across this before so can't offer any suggestions.

    I'm sure Eric is correct about the ribbon, I can't enlarge the pic right now but could it be an EK2 ribbonbar?
    Can anyone make out any black stripes on the edges of the ribbon? Do you know what awards your Grandfather was awarded?

    I would say that the negative was reversed when developed i have seen this on other photo's before.

    That was my first thought but notice the eagle and swastika are the right way round, if the photo was reversed they would be backwards. Also, if that was the case, the ribbon is on the wrong side.
