BADEN – MERIT MEDAL – SILVER

SKU: 05-1783

$35.00

The Baden Silver Merit Medal was Baden’s equivalent of the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class. Issued pieces had a slot at the top where a ribbon was inserted instead of a conventional jump ring. This example, however, was intended for use on a medal bar and DOES have the jump ring. It may well be a post WW I example….
