Article on the German SS Service Awards

4 Year SS Service Medal ,

(N38) An SS 4 Year Service Medal being of nice quality and construction. The award is of bronzed metal that is then chemically oxidised and blackened. This has been removed over the years by aggressive cleaning leaving the metal a brown, bronze brass colour. The award was given to NCO's and men who served in the Algermine SS. This award could not be issued to officers. Scarce to find nowadays, this is the type attributed to Petz & Lorenz. Becoming scarce to find. SORRY I AM STOLEN BUT LEFT FOR REF

(SScom) A very rare to find veteran bring back SS 4 Year Service Medal complete with it's original Case of Issue. The case is in very good condition although the hinge has been split and the case is now a two piece example, similar to the 25 year Faithful Service Crosses. The case has the nice white runes impressed to the lid and apart from a little splitting and handling wear, it is in very nice condition. The award itself is in superb condition and retains virtually all of it's original blackened finish. The medal has a nice shampfered eyering and tear drop suspender. There is some age toning to the medal but this is very minor. Very scarce to find a cased set complete with it's original ribbon SORRY I AM SOLD BUT LEFT FOR REF GBP 1000.00 (UK Pounds)

8 Year SS Service Medal ,

(K470) An SS 8 Year Service Medal in nice chocolate bronze colour. The medal has a nice teardrop suspender with a top shampfered eyering. The pebbling and finish is nice and the overall quality is very good. The medal is mounted on a blue piece of ribbon with it's own fixing pin at the top. Nice to find, this was apparently a soldier bring back at the end of the war SORRY I AM STOLEN BUT LEFT FOR REF

12 Year SS Service Cross ,

(MC316) An Exceedingly Rare SS 12 Year Service Cross in its Case of Issue (I think the case is a replacement, age unknown) . The cross is a nice one piece die stamped example, with all the usual features and flaws of the known originals. The cross has a nice oxidised and frosted silver finish, with the high points burnished to front and back. The teardrop eyering is standard to these as is the burnished shampfered eyering. The cross comes with its original wide ribbon that has the SS runes embroidered into it. It appears that at some point this has been mounted to a bar and removed. The case is a two piece hard case with a black leatherette covering with two silver SS runed embossed to the lid. Opened by a magnetic press stud, the case is also hinged with a steel hinge. To the inside of the case, it has a nice white silk lining with a burgundy compartmented base to hold the ribbon and cross. All in all, this is a very rare award to acquire. In exceedingly fine condition. Few of these were ever awarded. GBP 3999.00 (UK Pounds)

25 Year SS Service Cross ,

(M1114) A Superb and rarely encountered SS 25 Year Long Service Cross. The cross is of nice fire gilded and satin finished gold onto a nice tombak made cross. The cross has the usual features associated with an original and cannot be faulted in any way. The cross comes complete with its original ribbon with its wire runes sewn into it. Very rarely encountered nowadays. Only the third one we have ever had. This example matches the other two exactly.
