      I think it says "For War Earned" but I could be wrong.

      This is a "War Merit Medal" and is the lowest grade of the War Merit Cross series of medals, these were given to civilians in Germany who assisted with the war effort, nice medal just missing the ribbon and suspencion ring. Hope this helps.
