An excellent complete example! The 25 Year Faithful Service Cross was awarded to all officials, employees, and laborers at any level of the public service (local, regional or national) who completed 25 years of service. The award is constructed out of a die struck nickel-silver base that has been silver washed and contains black enamel work. The obverse depicts a pebbled cross with an oak leaf wreath visible to the corners and a centrally placed black static swastika / “Fur Treue Dienste” (For Faithful Service) to the reverse. The silver wash is just beautiful! The enamel work is 100%! The award comes with approximately 3 1/2 inches of folded blue rayon ribbon and a stitched on well working brass based pin assembly. The award comes housed in its original case! The case is constructed out of pressed cardboard with a simulated red, pebbled, leather covering and red felt inlay to the interior. There is an impressed silver “25” to the top. The interior top portion retains its original paper tag which reads: “C.F. Zimmermann Pforzheim”. The edges and corners are a bit worn and there is one soilage stain to the obverse. The case measures approximately 1 7/8 inches wide by 4 inches long by a ½ inch thick. A beautiful example!
