    It appears to be in the form of a post card.

    I tried both scanning and photographing, and neither really does it justice. It is better in hand than on the screen.

    Thank you, gentlemen. I cannot tell if the award is gold or silver, but am thinking more like silver to me, and I have an award document for a silver, so this will fit nicely.

    I've seen this particular photo before-I Believe that the woman in it was awarded the Gold cross by Hitler himself for having a small herd of children.
