I have never been a fan of the "I'm right because I say so" school of thought,
BUT
what is evident from what you say, is that I probably lack experience in seeing enough actual pieces [as opposed to seeing mostly photographs] .
Photographs are all very well up to a point but there is nothing like eyeballing actual examples.
No doubt I will get better at this with more firsthand experience.
Thanks for your interest.
Cheers
Greetings from the Wide Brown.

Given the rarity of the 25 year Partei award and the price I'm afraid the photographs are the nearest most people ever get to them ... I was lucky, right place, right time AND I'd done my homework so knew immediately it was an original. Due diligence is absolutely critical. Study good photos of known originals.

Do a search ... there are none for sale on the internet at the moment. Not one.

This is a long service cross of the NSDAP - thus a political award.
