A 18-jährige 1. Stufe. Polizei-Dienstauszeichnung. 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 tombak base that has been gold gilded. 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 (tied together at the top) 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 bordered pattée style cross. To the top is a soldered on loop and ring. Accompanying the award is approximately 4 inches of POST-WAR ribbon. It measures approximately 1 11/16 inches wide and tall. A good piece!
