I took this pic of the back of my medal I'm not sure if you can make out whats written there but it says ' KLEIST BERLIN ' and I believe underneath that it says 'FRUCKENSTRUM' but I'm not positive - its pretty worn. Does anyone know how I can find out more about this piece? I am very interested to know if the box came with it originally.I'd like to post more pics but every time I try to upload my photos it tells me theres not enough space.Thanks for the info!

I doubt if somebody was to copy it they would have put a fake name on the rear.

These were not official issue from a Government or State Military but, from

the German Legion of Honour, a War Veterans Association and I believe probably given

for service to the organisation but stand open to correction.

This is more normally associated with them:

with sword and wreath insignia on the ribbon for Combatant.
