    My West German and 57 awards collection... Part 8:

    Recommended Posts

    Next up is a Federal Cross of Merit 1st Class. This was another Ebay purchase which I think I lucked out on... as if I remember correctly I paid around $15 for it. I'd waited years to get some examples of this award but they always seemed to go for too much. So glad I waited.

    I keep hoping I'll be able to find a case for that one down the road as I think that will really set it off. I'm one of those folks who loves cased awards. :D

    Almost to the end...

    As Uwe says, the difference is in the size of the cross and not in the type of fastener if that why you refer to your crosses as male and female.  The difference in the fasteners is probably related to time of manufacture and not if the cross is a male or female award.
