German War Merit Cross Second Class with Swords.

 

The  War Merit Cross was a civilian award for courage on the home front by non-military personnel – a sort of Iron Cross for civilians. Like the Iron Cross, there were two classes: First Class and Second Class, with this being the Second Class (suspended from a ring by a red, white and black ribbon; First Class awards were heavier and pin-back). The award with swords was the highest level of the Second Class variant. Made from zinc with a bronze wash, this example is in good condition, though it lacks its ribbon.

Late War Luftwaffe ground assault badge.
