FAITHFULSERVICE #32560C Two Faithful Service Cross Awards to Same Person

This grouping consists of two Faithful Service Cross awards to the same person who was a teacher. The name is, “Klothilde Stubenrauch”. The first award is dated, 1 February 1939 and was for the 25 Year Silver Cross. This award has the state symbol of the eagle and swastika embossed at the bottom left and has a facsimile signature of state secretary Meissner. The other certificate is for a forty-year golden Faithful Service Cross dated 27 September 1941. This one has the embossed eagle and swastika and a facsimile of Hitler’s signature. It is interesting to note that the awards are only two years apart yet one was for 25 years and the other was for 40 years. As we know the Nazi Party did tend to exaggerate the time involved on their awards involving numbers of years. These two certificates certainly prove that point! Both certificates are folded in the center but are in excellent condition.
