long time since I had one but looks ok to me , ribbon should measure 35mm across
12 and 25 year should be 50mm across . Do you collect S.S. memorabilia in particular ?

Hi Patrick,
Just one question, how you recognize a Typ II medal ?
I have several 8 years medals (thanks Grand father !) but I don't know which typ they are.
Thanks !

Hi Anton,

I got these pics from Phil Slack and they show the differences between the types pretty clearly. The type II is a bit darker and the pebbeled texture is much more prominent than on the lighter type 1
