Superb, bright-golden-toned, WH (Heeres o. KM) 'WH-DA der 3. Stufe' (for 12 years of service) that came together with its (non-confectioned- ie. 'virtually mint') ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and detailed (golden-toned) eagle-device
This is a very attractive - and simply never mounted! - example of a bright-golden-toned and hardly tarnished nor stained! - WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine) so-called: 'WH-Dienstauszeichnung der 3. Stufe' (as was intended for 12 years of loyal-service) that came together with its (non-confectioned- ie. 'virtually mint' and approximatelty 19 cms. sized) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and detailed (bright-golden-toned) eagle-device and that comes as issued and/or recently found. The attractive - and fully untouched! - army or naval service-award was surely issued but was simply never used nor even mounted (as can be seen on the pictures). The detail on both medal and eagle-device is very nicely preserved and truly pronounced as to be expected: both have never been cleaned nor polished and have a nice ie. truly somewhat 'frosted' age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). The award shows some minimal storage-age, simply caused by decades of careful storage. Simply a superb example of a WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine)-related 'Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 3. Klasse für 12 Jahre Dienstzeit' that will be impossible to be upgraded and that is accordingly priced!
