I am guessing imperial but really have no idea. This town is very small at about 5000 in 1939 so I can't understand why they would have such a medal. But if your one of these guys that wants one example of every German awarded cross, here you go. Not a big piece with the cross measuring 3cm from tip to tip. Ribbon is fraying but it is kind of neat how it is sewn on the reverse. A neat little medal at a tidy price.
