Condition: Excellent

SKU: JW5189 Category: Tags ,


Product Description: This 10 Year NSDAP Faithful Service Medal is a nice example of this relatively scarce political award. This medal is the variant known to collectors as the “thick version.” It is struck from fine zinc, with a bronze finish. The obverse shows some fading to the finish, as is typical, but strong traces remain, with some attractive golden tones to the flanges of the cross. All of the original detail is intact, and there is a light, even patina. The reverse matches nicely in condition, with eye-catching bronze shades. The original suspension ring is intact, and is unmarked. The ring retains a correct original brown and white ribbon. The ribbon shows typical age toning, with extremely minor fraying to the cut ends, and retains strong original brown color. This 10 Year NSDAP Faithful Service Medal is a great representative original piece overall. The condition of this award rates as excellent.



Historical Description: Adolf Hitler was an army veteran in 1919. Frustrated by Germany’s defeat in World War I, he joined a new political organization called the German Workers’ Party. The organization was founded earlier that same year and promoted German nationalism. Members of this organization felt that the Treaty of Versailles was extremely unjust to Germany, by burdening it with reparations it could never pay. Hitler became the leader of this party in 1921 and changed the name to The National Socialist German Workers’ Party; Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP). In 1933, Hitler became chancellor of Germany and his Nazi government soon assumed dictatorial powers. After Germany’s defeat in World War II the Nazi party was outlawed.
