    I have not been able to find out about this medal specifically, but from what I gather it would be an unofficial medal issued by the contractor prior to the official issuance of the Westwall medal. Philipp Holzmann was (until 2002) a large construction firm which was one of those engaged in building several projects, including part of the Westwall. It is a nice and not common piece.
    Company information: Philipp Holzmann - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    For a discussion of similar medals see: Help!! - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums
    and for an example see: https://www.weitze.net/detail/93/Eri..._123593_f.html

    Thanks for sharing.

    Cardboard faux-croc boxes are not that unusual. Have you found out
    what the inscription on the front of the medal means ?
    Regards,

    I think the inscription on the front translates something like: "To the Worker Honor, To the Homeland Defense"
