War Merit Cross 1st Class with Swords - Screwback

This award was created by Adolf Hitler in October 1939, as a successor to the "non-combatant ribbon" of the Iron Cross which was used in earlier wars. The award was graded in the same way as the Iron Cross: War Merit Cross Second ClassWar Merit Cross First Class, and Knights Cross of the War Merit Cross. The award had two variants: with swords given to soldiers for exceptional service "not in direct connection with combat", and without swords given to civilians for meritorious service in "furtherance of the war effort". Recipients had to have the lower grade of the award before getting the next level.

This is the screwback version of the award given to soldiers, which also features the maker's mark on the reverse.

These beautifully recreated, War Merit Crosses are a must for reenactors and collectors alike.
