(S68) A War Merit Cross 2nd Class With Swords, being an Earlier bronzed issue. This cross is age stained and has tarnished, over the years. It could do with a sympathetic clean. The award is ring stamped 127 and is the type with the separately applied eyering. GBP 30.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1016) A nice early War Merit Cross 2nd Class with Swords. This is the early Bronze striking with a separately applied eye ring. The award has a nice caramel colour and comes complete with a nice piece of ribbon. Given for one act of bravery, not in the face of the enemy, this was the equivalent of the Iron Cross for non combatant awards GBP 35.00 (UK Pounds)

(R48) A late war War Merit Cross second class with swords, being the late war zinc type with a bronze plating applied. This has all but disappeared leaving the cross a grey slate colour with its original ribbon that has been glued and stuck to a board. . All in all, a reasonable example of a late war cross GBP 20.00 (UK Pounds)
