Brunswick War Merit 2nd Class - Information Needed!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Can anyone provide me with more information about this particular cross shown.  I purchased this approximately 5 years ago and was under the assumption that it was a late war production cross due to the ring attachment being on a single plain and not perpendicular as with most medals.  I was recently informed that this may not be the case.  I am just looking for more information about this type of cross, early or late war production, manufacturer if possible or any other information.  Thank you for all your help, it is greatly appreciated.

As I'm not sure from the pictures: is it made from bronze, or from a zinc alloy?






I can confirm that this medal is made from bronze,  here is a photo of the reverse side where you can see the bronze along some edges…
