Attractive - and rarely encountered! - commemorative, 'Feinzink'-based 'Reichsnährstand'-related service-award, being a non-maker-marked example showing the text: 'Reichsnährstand - Landesbauernschaft Bayern - für 20 Jahre treue Dienste'
The truly attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - oval-shaped service-badge (ie. 'Dienstauszeichnung' or: loyal-service award) is executed in (tarnished) golden-bronze-coloured- (and/or: typical 'Feinzink'-based) metal: it shows some regular wear and/or moderate age but is totally void of any real damage. The badge (having an approximate height of 4,7 cms.) has a (luxurious!) and functional pin-/catch set-up and has (I deem) never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'DA' is very detailed and has lost some of its golden-bronze-coloured finish. The 'DA' - which is as stated above a non-maker-marked example - depicts the: 'Reichsnährstand'-symbol (swastika with sword and corn-leave) surrounded by the text: 'Reichsnährstand - Landesbauernschaft Bayern - für 20 Jahre treue Dienste' (as can be seen on the pictures). The attractive piece comes as stated above mounted onto its functional pin-/catch set-up and is truly a high-quality produced example. Simply an attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered 'Reichsnährstand'-related service-award that was awarded for 20 years of loyal-service within this organisation!
