I am writing in hopes that you may help us identify an old medal. We think that it may be WWII Swedish or Danish but we have not found any pictures to match on the Internet or library. I am attaching pictures.

Kindest regards

    I did a google image search, and did not find any matches. The cross looks like an Imperial era "Order" of knighthood. But when you look at collectors "Orders" they are usually two sided. and looking at the safety pin hanging device, I think it is not precious metal. (I don't know). So rather than it being an Order, or a military award, I suspect that it might be an award from a civil society like the Freemasons, or Knights of Columbus or any number of european citizens organizations. But I don't have any evidence of that.
