    Default Dienstauszeichnung der Wehrmacht 12 jahre

    I asked a seller to send me a picture of his wehrmacht 12 year service award because i am looking for one to go with my 4 year example. However the 12 year award doesn't look right to me , the eagle on the ribbon (body to thin) also looks a funny color. and the wreath on the reverse of the medal the left hand side of it doesn't look correct , what do you chaps think?. Pics below..

    From those pics I would agree it doesnt look good. Very soft detail

    The wording is not at all as sharp as on Glenn's example

    There is a nice one available here:

    The Butschek example is quite nice, but sadly no eagle.

    Thanks for the info Nick on the pictures and for the link , i am indeed looking for one with the eagle on the ribbon as my other one has the eagle so would be a nice matching pair. I can only ever seem to find the 12 year with eagle on as a medal bar with the 4 year next to it. I may go for that and have a pair that way. Although it means paying a bit extra. Thanks chaps for your help , first thing that jumped out to me on the sellers pics was the thin body on the ribbon eagle. Then the wreath just doesn't look right as all the outer left hand side looks to be within a circle if you see what i mean. Oh well on with the hunt . Much appreciated chaps , Thank you.

    Compared to Glenn's medals I would not be buying the one in the opening post. The details are just not there in the eagle and the writing. There is no crispness on it. Compare also the length of the eagle's neck!
