Bright-silver-toned WH (Heeres o. KM) so-called: 'Einzelspange' showing a: 'WH-Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe' (as was intended for 4 years of loyal-service) and that shows a detailed, Heeres o. KM-type-eagle-device, period-attached
This is an attractive - and I deem just moderately used- and worn! - example of a bright- (ie. 'frosted') silver-toned WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine) so-called: 'Einzelspange' (or: single-pieced medal-bar) showing a detailed: 'WH-Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe' (as was intended for 4 years of loyal-service) and that has a neat and pronounced (regular-sized) WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine) eagle-device period-attached and that comes mounted onto its confectioned, darker-blue- (ie. cornflower-blue-) coloured ribbon as issued. The detail on this example is simply extraordinary: it has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished and has an attractive and somewhat 'frosted'- (ie. minimally tarnished) age-patina. The medal is 'mounted' onto a clasp (with functional pin/catch-set-up) as was intended for wearing this example on a 'going-out'- ie. dress-tunic or 'Waffenrock'. This example truly retains gorgeous details and has a great ie. only minimally darkened- ie. tarnished age-patina: it retains all of its somewhat 'matted'- and/or: silver-toned finish without showing any defaults. It is nicely 'backed' with a piece of bright-red-coloured wool and comes mounted onto a 'backing-plate' as is more often seen. The darker-blue-coloured ribbon shows only minimal usage and/or staining. Hard to find a more attractive WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine) example that comes mounted as an: 'Einzelspange'!
