SS 12 YEAR SERVICE MEDAL WITH LETTER OF PROVINANCE FROM REICHSCHANCELLORY.
This is an exceptional example of the SS 12 year long service medal, the medal is formed as a large silver static swastika with SS runes to the center within a wreath. The reverse side of the medal has the inscription, FUR TREUEDIENSTE IN DER SS, the medal retains almost all of it's original silver frosting. Complete with original blue silk ribbon with silver bullion runes, often these ribbons are missing and are now impossible to locate, so this is an especially nice example as it is still remaining. Complete with this SS medal is letter of provenance which is actually written on sheet of Adolf Hitler's Reichchancellory note paper, the letter states, THE ACCOMPANYING NAZI SS MEDAL WAS TAKEN BY THE WRITER FROM ADOLF HITLER'S OFFICE IN THE REICHSCHANCELLORY IN BERLIN ON JULY FOURTH 1945, it is signed by a Charles May of Radio productions (obviously he worked with Allied Radio propaganda). The medal ribbon was originally stapled to the letter and then folded, sealed and then sent home to Mays home. The SS 12 year service medal is considerably rarer than a knights cross, especially when complete with correct SS runic ribbon and in my opinion much more desirable. A superb set.
