NSDAP cross 15 years
Again gentlemen, I need help. I have found this one and cannot make up my mind whether it is real or not.
OK, the condition is not the best, but it seems to be OK.
The enamel is not perfectly pillowed, but then it doesn't seem to be on others I have viewed.
The small ring has me puzzled as it looks original to the medal (possibly removed from a medal bar?)
No makers mark, its heavy, and the loop is partially crushed out of shape.
Thanks in advance.

An original medal IMO. A similar sized rings have been observed on other known originals of 10, 15 and 25 year medals. I must say I rather like the rough, used look of this one. Especially in contrast with the dark browned tombak base.

Thanks Matt, I will amend the title to 15 years.
Did you get the pic of the Braunschweig badge?
Yes, I have- thanks a bunch!
I have a theory about that and will email you once I get a chance to confirm in next couple of days.
