    Default DDR Verdienstmedaille

    Another medal purchased a while back... and this one is also to a high ranking DDR politician. Margarete Mueller joined the SED in 1951 and studied agricultural science at Demmin and the University of Leningrad. By 1971 she had reached the higher echelons of power and was appointed to the State Council where she was responsible for agriculture, forestry, and food production. She resigned her post in January 1990.

    The Medal of Merit of the GDR was just one of several orders which was bestowed on her during her extensive political career. Along with the medal came a gift of 1,000 Marks, and the award was usually presented on 'May Day' and 'Republic Day' (October 7th). Click on images to enlarge.

    Cheers,

    A very nice looking medal and with an interesting history too. Worthy of a museum exhibit. Interesting to think how she might have felt after so many years of service to the state and this all coming to an end with the collapse of the DDR.

    The German dealer who sold me this medal also has her Verdienstorden in bronze and silver... she also received the award in gold - although the dealer does not have that. I didn't know about this when I purchased the medal, and I had known, I would not have purchased this one. I hate to see medal groups broken up.

    This award still isn't a patch on the Aenne Kundermann award that I posted though. Check link below.
