WWII German Cased War Merit Cross 1st Class w/Swords-This example is produced in zinc and is missing all of the silver finish except for the pin. There is very minor visible wear to the details. The pin is lightly tapered and functions as intended. The hinge and catch are cast as part of the badge. The pin is stamped with the number 62 indicating it was produced by Kerbach & Oesterhelt of Dresden. The domed case is black pebbled leatherette with black flocking inside. There is some wear to the exterior. The case is produced by the same manufacturer. Sound overall!
