WWII German War Merit Cross Ribbon, Approximately 10" Long- This is original ribbon for the War Merit Cross Second Class award (with or without Swords) but was used for the ribbon bars. Therefore, it is slightly narrower than that used on the actual medal. It actually measures approximately 1" wide (the ribbon used for the decoration is 1.25" wide). The ribbon is in mint, un-used condition, cut into approximate 10" lengths - this can serve as a substitute for two War Merit Cross Second Class medals. The ribbon is crisp and super clean.
