    it is the German Eagle Medal of Merit with Swords. (Deutsche Verdienst Medaille mit Schwerter). It came in different classes. Not sure what they were. It was to foreign political dignitaries originally and the swords were supposed to be for distinguished military merit. The ribbon is wrong tho. That is for the War Merit Cross. I'm not an expert on WW2 German, but the ribbon and medal both look real to me.
