The West Wall Medal was awarded to those who designed, built, fortified or served at Germany's western borders. This specific Westwall medal is likely produced by C. Poellath int he late days of the war, and is made of zinc. It shows some age in the form of oxidization and discoloration, much of the original bronze finish is lost to time. The reverse of the badge depicts an embossed inscription of “Für Arbeit Zum Schutze Deutschlands” (For Work for the Protection of Defense of Germany). The ribbon on this medal is a possible replacement, however it appears to have been attached to this medal for some time.
