    You are going to love this: I'm not really sure. I thought it looked cool ,was a cased and already mounted medal, so I bought it. I thought at the worst case scenario, I can wear it on my Volkssturm reenactor uniform I am putting together.

    The ribbon looks a bit like a Mothers Cross, I bet that was the source of some jokes at the wearers expense

    And martin, I have bought many items on that basis. It's amazing (and maybe worrying) that your gut can still guide you even when you have no clue what an item is

    It's a pre 1933 25 year faithful service in Bavarian industry medal. After that time there was a swastika at the bottom of the medal and the wording on the case was different.

    I think it may be solid silver, does it have the number '1000' on the ring or edge of the award?

    Hello there,

    I believe this is pre 1933 as well. Nice court mounting on this one. Can we see a reverse of the medal bar please? Really a MINT piece.
