German Federal Republic War Merit Cross 1st class (1957 pattern).

This version of the War Merit Cross was introduced in 1957 and authorized for wear by recipients of the award from WWII. The WWII award itself could not be worn without contravening the De-Nazification laws introduced after WWII. It is almost identical to the WWII issue piece. The only difference is the absence of the swastika on the obverse.

This example is die struck with a pleasing matt silver finish.
With correct pinback fitting.
