On 30 January 1938, Adolf Hitler ordered the institution of an award for members of the police force who met qualifications based on length of service. The award was given in three grades to men who had served for eight, eighteen, and twenty-five years.

The gold twenty-five-year service cross was the first class award. It was of the same design as the second class award but the four-pointed cross (Ordenskreuz) was of gold rather than silver.

This 25 Year award is in mint condition with 100% of its gold wash intact. The blue ribbon has a couple of holes where the medal has been worn, it also has the gold police eagle embroided onto a small patch of ribbon and then affixed to the main ribbon.

A beautiful award complete with original period ribbon.
