Medal bars are fine as long as they just show the long service awards like your excellent examples.

Just pasting some text from my site:

"The SS Dienstauszeichnung (Long Service Honor Award) was instituted on 30 January 1938. On the same day also the statute of the SS service honor was issued, and the text published on Pages 66-67 of the Reichsblatt Part 1 of No 8, published Berlin, 30 January 1938.

The award is an acknowledgment for faithful and true services of SS members in the SS-Verfügungstruppen, SS-Totenkopfverbänden und SS-Junkerschulen. (Other SS personel were eligible to recieve the NSDAP Long Service awards.)

The four classes of awards were designed by Professor Karl Diebitsch of Munich.

The grades are awarded to the respective ranks as follows:

1st Class (Gold) for 25 years true service awards to eligable Officers, NCO's and Men
2nd Class (Silver) for 12 years true service awards to eligable Officers, NCO's and Men
3rd Class (Bronze) for 8 years true service awards to eligable Officers, NCO's and Men
4th Class (Black) for 4 yrs true service for eligable NCO's and Men.


Honourable service time from 1925 counted towards this award. I'm not sure of the date but the award was suspended during the war period, probably during 1941.

The 'Kampfzeit' period 1925 to 1933 and active military service counted as double, hence it was possible to accumulate enough eligible service years to recieve the 25 Year Long Service award in the 12 year period.
