WWII mix with repair job on the iron cross ribbon. Could this have had wiederholungsspange? Or could it just have simply been damaged on the Russian front and field repaired...

 a large 1914 cast bronze medal by medallist anita lehzen depicting the upcoming great thrashing that germany is about to unload on the multi-headed hydra with animal heads representing the members of the entente; the russian bear is already down, while the gallic rooster and english bulldog are both about to get sliced and diced...
