A 4-Jährige Dienstzeit in der Wehrmacht (4. Klasse). The 4 Year Wehrmacht Long Service (4th Class) was awarded for 4 years of good standing military service. It is constructed out of a die stamped steel base that has been silver washed and finished in a protective lacquer coating. The round shaped obverse depicts; a national closed winged eagle, clutching a swastika in its talons, below and arched: “Treue Dienste in der Wehrmacht” (Faithful Service in the Wehrmacht). The reverse depicts a “4” encircled by an oak leaf and acorn wreath that is tied together at the top and bottom. To the top is a soldered on loop and ring which holds 6 ½ inches of blue rayon ribbon. Attached to the ribbon, with both prongs, is a Heer eagle with outstretched wings clutching a wreathed swastika in its talons. Nice patina. The award measures 1 3/16 inches in diameter. A great piece!
