Circular silver medal with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a six-pointed rayed star imposed on a six-pointed faceted star, a circular central medallion with an escutcheon with heraldic hatching for the colours black, red and yellow, circumscribed ‘FÜR TREUE DIENST’ (for faithful service), all on a stippled ground; the reverse with the arms of the German Democratic Republic; age-toned; on original ribbon and pentagonal hanger, mounted for wear. The medal was instituted on 22 January 1959 to reward faithful and blameless service in the armed service of the Ministry of the Interior. The notorious Volkspolizei (‘VoPos’) were a national military force, rather like the French gendarmerie or the Italian carabinieri, though enforcing the will of the Communist government. This is a very good early example, without the arms of the DDR imposed on the escutcheon of the face.
