A beautiful Type I SS-Dienstauszeichnungen! The SS Long Service Award would be awarded for eight years of service within the SS. It is constructed out of a die struck bronze base that has been blackened. The round shaped obverse features two centrally placed SS runes that are surrounded by an oak leaf and acorn wreath that is tied together at the bottom and is in front of a stagnant swastika which lies all on a pebbled field. The reverse reads: “Für Treue Dienste in der SS” (For Loyal Service in the SS) and is in front of an “8” and all lies on a pebbled field. To the top is the proper soldered on loop and tear drop suspension ring. It measures approximately 1 ½ inches in diameter. It comes with approximately 5 ¾ inches of POST-WAR ribbon. A great piece missing from most collections!
