    Default 25 Years faithfull service.

    Guys,

    Nothing special but local interest again for me.

    I'm guessing Justice of the peace?

    Nice that it has not been folded, quite unusual!

    Regards

    No, he was something more humble: A Justizwachtmeister was a court security guard / bailiff.

    That is a nice document Jock, it looks brand new. The seal is crisp and crystal clear. HBL your spot on translations are fantastic. Thanks for all your efforts. Your mastery of the German and English languages are impressive. I struggle with my solo native English.

    Take care,
    Jay

    HPL,

    Thanks for the detail, I'm surprised we had a court in Bergen back then as it was a one horse town. The nearest today is Celle I think.

    Jay, it is in good nick I don't know where it has been stored as this is from a stamp dealer, I think he must have got it with a job lot?

    pretty neat. I think it's great that you guys from Germany and other places get to collect things that reflect your specific area of living. I live in Virginia, US...so sadly my area only offers Civil War significance. You all are correct that HPL has a gift for detail! I have seen his expertise in action many times now.

    I think that the geographical designation refers to the awardee's place of residence rather than the location of his employer, so he may very well have worked at the court in Celle.

    Oh, and many thanks for the kind words from Panzer1031 & sitges1990!
