    Thumbs up Police Long Service Medal Bars

    Hi folks,
    I love medal bars and especially examples with Police Long Service medals. I will post three of mine and please post some of your examples.

    Regards,
    Jody

    First up is a rare example with an 8 year medal. The 8 year Police Long service award is the hardest to find on a medal bar.

    Thumbs up 18 Year

    Here is a nice example with the 18 year service medal that was awarded to a man that in the Luftschutz. I only collect the higher grade awards of Police medals on bars that have the eagle embroidered directly on the ribbon and not separately attached.

    Regards,

    Thumbs up 25 Year

    Here is a nice non-combatant example on a small medal bar. The eagle is also embroidered directly onto the ribbon. This example was veteran obtained in 2000 from a 3rd US Infantry Division veteran.

    This is actually an interesting matter, by the way. Let me quote from the final edition of Dr. Heinrich Doehle's period work "Die Auszeichnungen des Gro▀deutschen Reiches" (translation by me):


    "If mounted on a medal bar, the service award ribbons with embroidered symbols (national insigne, Sig runes) presented the problem that the ribbon's slant caused the symbol to come into a sloping position as well, which was unacceptable. The retailers for decorations initially made do by affixing a separate piece of ribbon bearing the symbol. In order to prevent the resultant visual appearance of a botch job, the order chancellery ordered a 5-cm wide ribbon to be used for medal bar mounting, which runs vertically from top to bottom on the medal bar, with a vertical fold opening up at the bottom to be laid on either side of the embroidered symbol. The ribbon is split at the bottom and the ends are laid around the decoration from the right and the left. Through this, the same appearance as with other decorations is created and the sloping position of the embroidered symbol is prevented."


    Anyway, those are some lovely medal bars!
