Description
 
Original Third Reich Luftschutz 1st Class Service Medal Dated 1938- The Luftschutz Medal 1st Class stands as one of the most elusive and prized decorations from its era. Crafted in the distinctive Maltese Cross design, its center features a swastika encircled by the inscription "Für Verdienste Im Luftschutz" (For Meritorious Service in Air Raid Protection). On the reverse side, the year of its inaugural issuance, 1938, is proudly displayed.

This medal lacks its original ribbon, and the loop at the top has broken off. Nevertheless, its scarcity adds to its allure, with only a thousand of these prestigious medals ever conferred, making it an exceedingly rare artifact. The medal shows age and patina.

While some listings may include this medal with its ribbon, such complete sets often command prices around $1200.00. For collectors and enthusiasts alike, the medal measures approximately 5cm by 5cm, with an overall length of approximately 10cm including the ribbon.
