SS Long Service Medal

Post by afa485 » 10 Mar 2022 17:38

I have had some outstanding support on the forum recently, in identifying badges and people from photographs. My knowledge is growing all the time thanks to several helpful members and I hope that I am in a position soon to share some knowledge myself.

I have attached a couple of photographs of an SS 8 year long service medal. It looks authentic and original to me, however if anyone has any opinions or knowledge of the features to look out for on original medals like this I would be very grateful to hear.

Best regards as ever

Tony

Hello afa485;

An original SS Long Service medal of 2nd pattern.

You have to pay attention to details such as lettering, wreath, suspension ring, the swastica touching inner circle, material.
