German Decoration for Bravery and Merit of the Eastern People Second Class in Silver, with Original Ribbon-These were awarded in two different classes (First and Second) at three different levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold) for both bravery (with Swords) and service (without Swords) to Russian volunteers fighting under German leadership. This example is silver, Second Class, without swords and includes its correct green striped ribbon. This example retains a hint of its silver finish, with minor wear only. The pin functions properly. A good example!
