Good evening gents, I was wondering if anyone knows what this is please? It was described as Für 25 Jahre Mitgliedschaft, Conrad, Weimar

Is it a pin back? It looks quite beaten up.

You see these usually on ribbons. They were made by jewelers and sold in catalogs and local veterans associations had them made and awarded for "long service/membership". there are all sorts out there.

here are three that over time, i have acquired. initially i assumed that they were for a specific military veteran's group, but one must remember that this maker made a lot of medals and badges for civilian organizations such as the red cross, civil services, social welfare support groups, samaritan, and religious aid societies. the shades of green and red enamels sort of make me lean in that direction, i guess.

i like to think that the smaller 25-year badge was for a female member of this yet-unidentified (to me) organization.

can anyone now positively attribute these?

Another similar long service cross... this time for a specific organization being the Fire Brigade, along with the recipients' WW2 bar.
