A Treudienst-Ehrenzeichen 2. Stufe für 25 Jahre 1938. 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. It is constructed out of a die struck nickel-silver base that has been silver washed and contains black enamel work. The obverse features a pebbled pattée style cross that has an oak leaf wreath visible through the corners and a centrally placed black static swastika / “Fur Treue Dienste” (For Faithful Service) to the reverse. To the top is a soldered loop and ring which holds approximately 4 inches of folded blue rayon ribbon and a stitched on well working brass based gilded pin assembly. The award measures approximately 1 5/8 inches wide and tall. The silver gilt wonderfully shines in the light and the enamel work is 99%+. 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 silvered “25” to the top. The interior top portion retains its original paper tag which reads: “Paul Meybauer Ordenfabrik Berlin SW 68”. The case measures approximately 4 inches long by 1 15/16 inches wide by 5/8 inches thick. The bottom portion of the case has tears to the two left corners. It also shows minor scuffs throughout. A nice one!
