The Series of the Order of the German Eagle was originally instituted by Hitler on May 1ST 1937, in varying degrees for award to foreign political dignitaries. The award was modified and other "degrees" were added in 1939, and again in 1943. The last version of these awards were designated "class" instead of "degree". Also in 1939 crossed swords were added to the award when it was to be issued to personnel who had displayed distinguished military merit. The Medal of Merit was the lowest class in the series.
