Default Medal for outstanding achievements in socialist education in the pioneer organization

Medal for outstanding achievements in socialist education in the pioneer organization "Ernst Thälmann
The medal for outstanding achievements in socialist education in the pioneering organization "Ernst Thalmann" was an award of the Free German Youth of the German Democratic Republic (GDR), which in 1961 first in two stages, bronze and silver and 1972 expanded by a third in bronze, was donated. The "medal" has the shape of a transverse oval oak leaves wreath of 39 mm width, which shows in its center an oversized worker flag, the tip of which protrudes beyond the edge of the badge. In the middle of the flag are the two head portraits of Ernst Thälmann and Wilhelm Pieck resting on a small medallion bordered by two crossed laurel branches on the underside. The inscription TO THE FIGHT FOR THE THING / ERNST THÄLMANNS & WILHELM PIECKS is to be read in the flag above their heads . Under the medallion is the slogan SEID READY . For all levels there was also a 22.5 mm wide miniature.

Medaille für hervorragende Leistungen bei der sozialistischen Erziehung in der Pionierorganisation „Ernst Thälmnn
Die Medaille für hervorragende Leistungen bei der sozialistischen Erziehung in der Pionierorganisation „Ernst Thälmann“ war eine Auszeichnung der Freien Deutschen Jugend der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik (DDR), welche 1961 zunächst in zwei Stufen, Bronze und Silber und 1972 um eine dritte in Bronze erweitert, gestiftet wurde. Die „Medaille“ hat die Form eines querliegenden ovalen Eichenlaubkranzes von 39 mm Breite, das in seiner Mitte eine überdimensionierte Arbeiterfahne zeigt, deren Spitze über den Rand des Abzeichens hinausragt. Mittig der Fahne sind die beiden Kopfporträts von Ernst Thälmann sowie von Wilhelm Pieck zu sehen, die auf einem kleinen Medaillon ruhen und an ihrer Unterseite von zwei gekreuzten Lorbeerzweigen eingefasst sind. Über ihren Köpfen ist in der Fahne die Aufschrift ZUM KAMPF FÜR DIE SACHE / ERNST THÄLMANNS U. WILHELM PIECKS zu lesen. Unter dem Medaillon steht die Parole SEID BEREIT. Zu allen Stufen gab es auch eine 22,5 mm breite Miniatur.

Gordon - Now you got me thinking if I even have the three different levels of these badges. I appreciate that you posted the badges in their original boxes.

Ralph,

Your welcome. I was luck years ago when I was able to buy all three in their original boxes.

Regards,

Gordon
