Default 1st class German eagle order

Can I please get some opinions on this medal? It belongs to a friend and is a little beyond my expertise. There is a 2 on the side? It’s marked 900 & 21 for godet I believe. Thanks again, Kamil

There is no doubt in my mind that the eagle in your cross is a Godet, but I do not see it illustrated in that post.

Totally agree with Peter.

That marking "2" indicates that it was part of the whole Order with a star (6-pointed star + neck order), second category from 1937 to 1945.

It is a model manufactured by Godet & Sohn in the period 1943-1945 where the categories were as follows:

-Grand Cross (8 Pointed star+SASH)
-1St Eagle Order (8 pointed star+SASH with white central line)
-2Nd Eagle Order (6 pointed star+Neck Order)
-3Rd Eagle Order (Neck Order only)
-4Th Eagle Order (Brust cross with needle)
-5Nd Eagle Order (Enameled cross with ribbon)
-Silver Medal
-Bronce Medal

You cannot compare eagles of a Neck Order with images of eagles of a fourth class (cross attached to the chest with a needle) ... there are small differences.

As for the opposite side, it only indicates that the neck order shows the opposite side ... these decorations are enameled on both sides.
