NSDAP Faithful Service Decoration – Battlefield recovered
Offered for sale is an original Nazi Faithful Service Medal, 1st Class. Instituted 1/30/38.
These Faithful Service Medals were part of the Civil Decorations of Nazi Germany.
The Faithful Service Medal (Treudienst-Ehrenzeichen für Beamte Angestellte und Arbeiter) was founded on the 30th of January 1938 in two classes and one class to reward civilians in the employ of the public services, and in exceptional cases private concerns, for long and faithful service.
All officials, employees, and laborers at any level of the public service (local, regional or national) who completed 25 or more years service were eligible for The Civil Service Faithful Service Medal in Silver (Treudienst-Ehrenzeichen für Beamte Angestellte und Arbeiter im öffentlichen Dienst Stufe in Silber).
This one is not in good condition having been found by a metal detector enthusiast in Berlin.
Looks as if someone has tried to de-Nazify it in the past as the swastika is a bit chipped.
