A 12-Jährige Dienstzeit in der Wehrmacht (3. Klasse). The 12 Year Wehrmacht Long Service (3rd Class) was awarded for 12 years of good standing military service. It is constructed out of a die stamped steel base that has been gold gilded. The round shaped obverse depicts, in gold; a closed winged Heer eagle, clutching a swastika in its talons, below and arched: “Treue Dienste in der Wehrmacht” (Faithful Service in the Wehrmacht). The reverse depicts a “12” encircled by an oak leaf and acorn wreath that is tied together at the top and bottom.
