Third Reich Bavarian Industrial 25 Year Faithful Service Medal-The award is tombak made with blue and white enameled shield in blue and white for the Bavarian colors. You can see a swastika underneath the shield. On either side of the shield are two Lions, holding a large cog wheel. This is mounted onto its blue and white parade ribbon, with a horizontal pinback that functions perfectly. This medal has a beautiful tone, and striking details. The enamel on the checkered shield is age toned but may clean up nicely. The reverse center bears the inscription FÜR 25 JAHRE TREUE DIENSTE (for 25 years of faithful service), circumscribed by the inscription VERBAND BAYERISCHER INDUSTRIELLEN (ASSOCIATION OF BAVARIAN INDUSTRIES).  This medal is not marked but could be made by Deschler. Again, this is speculation. When this medal was awarded, it came with a miniature. Excellent example.
