    The second class award was for 25 years of service was a silver cross, with a silver wreath and a black enameled swastika in the center of the cross.

    The first class award was for 40 years of service was a gold cross, with a gold wreath and a black enameled swastika in the center of the cross.

    Hi Nick , no i haven`t got a gold one yet but i will add one soon I think these are not collected as much because they are not campaign medals . I don`t normally collect civil awards either and i`ve only just got this , but as you say , it looks good and caught my eye , and got it for a song !
