Minatur - Dienstauszeichnung der Polizei 3. Stufe für 8 Jahre. Instituted January 30, 1938, the Police Service Long Award was awarded to active members of the German Police who gave 25 years of service surrounding the Third Reich era. It is constructed out of a die struck nickel silver base that has been silver washed. The round shaped obverse features a centrally placed police emblem which consists of a German national eagle clutching a wreathed mobile swastika in its talons above an oval oak leaf wreath. The reverse depicts a centrally placed “8” surrounded by: “Für Treue Dienst in der Polizei” (For Loyal Service in the Police). To the top is an integral loop and ring. Accompanying the award is 1 3/4 inches of 5/8 inch wide blue ribbon, I do not know if it is original. The award measures 5/8 of an inch in diameter.
