German Imperial Long Service Award for Railway-This is a handsome early badge. This badge was awarded for 40 years of faithful service in the Deutsche Reichsbahn. The image is a set of wings, topped by a detailed crown. The wings are on either side of stylized train wheel. Below this, is a large wreath, that also shows an emblem of the number “40”. The badge is a stamped silver. The horizontal pin on the reverse works as intended. The reverse is beautifully marked for Joseph Wagner of Berlin, and below this you see the “800” for the silver content. Great looking badge, that is in great condition.
