Cased NSDAP Ten Years Long Service Award (NSDAP - Dienstauszeichnung in Bronze - 3. Stufe für 10 Jahre Treue Dienst). The NSDAP Long Service Awards were instituted in three classes on 2 April 1939 for award to long serving party members. Time served between February 1925 and January 1933 during the 'Kampfzeit' counted as double in recognition of the Old Guard. The distinction of the three classes was time served with the first class awarded for twenty-five years service, fifteen years service for the second class, and ten years service for the third class. This is a nice tombak (Buntmetall) ten years long service award, complete with its original ribbon, stored in its original brown coloured carton box. The box shows a nice golden imprinted eagle on top and is showing some normal traces of usage. The box is nicely marked with 'RZM M1/120' indicating production by the company of 'Wilhelm Deumer' from Lüdenscheid. Nice set in very good condition!
