(MC42) A Nice RAD Man's Service Medal in Silver for 12 and 18 Years service respectively. The award is the zinc type with a cast in eye ring. As is often the case with some of these late war cast zinc examples, it is splitting down the edge seam which was originally sheared out when it was ejected. It is still solid though. Becoming scarce to find. This was part of a group picked up by someone who was obviously in charge of de-nazification or had light fingers! GBP 75.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC627) A Very Nice and Rare to find example of a Cased 4 Year RAD Service Medal. To start, the medal is in near mint condition and is the Early lightweight type. The medal is mounted on its blue ribbon and has a fixing pin to the top. The ribbon is nice and clean and is of good quality sewing up, mounted for wear. The award comes in its two piece brown card case, similar to the red faithful service crosses, this one has a number 4 within a silver cogwheel embossed to the lid. The case is nice and clean. These are not often encountered these days. This one is in beautiful condition too. GBP 185.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS254) A RAD Medal in Silver being the lightweight cupal type in near mint condition. The award is complete with its original blue ribbon that is sewn up. This was recently removed from a salesman's board. GBP 100.00 (UK Pounds)

(S356) A Very Rare example of a privately purchased RAD Man's 25 Year Gold Service Medal. The medal is of gilt oxidised and polished finish being of lightweight construction with the highlights burnished, like to the lettering to the reverse, the swastika to the spade and the ears of corn etc. This award is also ring marked L/11 for the firm of Deumer. A very nice example to find, especially a lightweight privately purchased example. GBP 495.00 (UK Pounds)

OTHER LABOUR AWARDS

(P471) A Superb example of a Silver Bayern Labour Service Medal. The medal is silver hallmarked on the side 900 silver. It has a separately applied enamel shield with the Bayern colours soldered into the centre. There is no enamel damage to this shield. The award was given for 25 years service to Bayern industry and coincidentally, it is still award omission of the swastika that's at the base. A fine pretty scarce award. GBP 150.00 (UK Pounds)
