Nice cased example of War Merit Cross w Swords. Die struck zinc construction typical of late war production. Medal is in very good condition and maker marked "3" for Wilhelm Deumer. The box has an embossed War Merit Cross on the lid and looks good closed. The back leatherette spine is separated. Inside, the cardboard paper trim is lifted in the back left corner (This really could be glued down with decent results) and the silk joiner in the back is ripped a little more then half way. This all adds up to the lesser half of the silk joiner (On the right side) being the only thing keeping the lid on. Again, this could be sure up a bit and this is certainly better then no box.
