Many collectors are drawn to this decoration because it's the so-called "Frozen Meat Medal" and as such embodies the hardships on the Eastern Front. But for me this one will always stand out due to the design of its ribbon. Hands down, the most beautiful of the German WW2 ribbons! Instantly recognisable, even on black and white period photos.
The way this badge combines all these different shapes into one item is fascinating! On the one hand, it's a shame that it wasn't given out more often. But on the other hand, the rarity of it certainly contributes to its special character.
