Original German WWII NSDAP Party Long Service Award Second Class with Ribbon - 15 Years
Original Item: Only One Available. The NSDAP Party Long Service Award (Die Dienstauszeichnung der NSDAP) was a political award in the form of a badge awarded during the Third Reich era. The award was given in three grades of ten years, fifteen years, and twenty-five years of service. On its reverse side, each award had emblazoned the inscription, in German: Treue für Führer und Volk (Loyalty to Leader and People). The service award was a four-pointed cross (Ordenskreuz) cross with slightly curved arms. In the center of the cross is the national eagle with an oakleaves wreath. Between the arms were rays, which was suspended from a 30mm ribbon. On 2 April 1939, AH ordered its institution for male and female members of the NSDAP who met certain qualifications. The award was first given out on 30 January 1940.
This is a very nice example of the Second class award, for 15 years of service to the NSDAP. It is silver plated with dark blue enamel on the arms of the four-pointed cross and for the center section inside of the oak leaf wreath. It comes complete with the dark blue ribbon with two gray stripes towards each edge. There is a bit of wear on the wreath around the inscription, as well as some light staining to the ribbon. The silver has a lovely patina, and the enamel is very well retained.
A very good example, ready to display!
