An extremely rare Dienstauszeichnung der NSDAP 3. Stufe in Gold by (RZM M11/19) Wilhelm Deumer of Lüdenscheid. The RZM M11/ series is specific for NSDAP Long Service awards. This is not “19” (Weidmann) as Präsidialkanzlei (PKZ) numbers were not used on NSDAP long service awards. The III Stage NSDAP Long Service in Gold, was instituted April 2nd 1939, and was awarded after 25 years of long-standing and faithful work in the service of the NSDAP. It is constructed out of a buntmetall base that has been gold fire gilded with polished highlights, contains white enamel work and is finished in a protective lacquer coating. The obverse features a gold eagle with outstretched wings clutching a wreathed mobile swastika in its talons in front of an oak leaf wreath that is tied together at the bottom in front of a white pattée style cross that is surrounded by a gold ribbed/beaded row and a flat outlying border, that has sun ray emanating out of the corners. The reverse reads: “Treue für Führer und Volk” (Loyalty for the Leader and the People), to the center and is surrounded by that same wreath, cross and rays. To the top is an integral loop and “19” maker marked ring. Accompanying the ring is 8 1/2 inches of the appropriate red, white and gold rayon ribbon. The ribbon is well used with soilage and tears. The award is in beautiful condition. It measures 1 11/16 inches wide and tall. The thin, “19” maker marked NSDAP 25 Year Long Service is the most desirable variation.
