Here we have a 2nd Class 18 Year Police Long Service Award! This was awarded to active members of the German Police who gave 18 years of service surrounding the Third Reich era. It is constructed out of a die struck nickel silver base that has been silver washed. The obverse features a centrally placed police logo which consists of a German national eagle clutching a wreathed mobile swastika in its talons above an oval oak leaf wreath which is in front of a pebbled pattée style cross that has a smooth boarder. The reverse reads: “Für Treue Dienst in der Polizei” (For Loyal Service in the Police) within an oval smooth backing and in front of that same pattée style cross. To the top is a soldered on loop and ring which holds approximately 2 ¾ inches of folded over blue rayon ribbon that is stitched with a button device to the top. The detail and silver wash looks great! It measures approximately 1 11/16 inches wide and tall. A great piece here just for you!
