Exclamation SS Long service awards

Today I show 3 of mine SS long service medals.

Both the 8 years are from the same maker, that for some collectors was Deschler, but we found some evidences (from the maker catalog) that might be produced from Schickle.

The 4 years I show is known as a Petz & Lorenz production.

The firms of Petz & Lorenz and Deschler/Schickle are the only I've ever encountered in my researches (and in period catalogs). I think that this is another field we should study more thoroughly, to avoid some mistakes we have seen in the past.

Please, if you have SS long service medals differents from those I show here, post them!

Here the medals.
