40th Anniversary of GDR Medal


Recommended Posts

Everyone who worked in the public service sector (government employees, military, police, etc.) received it. The military version had the same medal with a red ribbon on a five-sided suspension with the date plaque positioned just below the top (opposite the clasp).

Kind of good-bye medal from the late DDR.

Here is the type for uniformed services (no bar - sorry):

I have not seen one of these on a medal bar before. Thank you for sharing these. Are the military versions difficult to find?

No, they aren't. The question remains open how many of them are genuine. It is not difficult to find a longer strip of the appropriate ribbon and a pentagonal plate and remount the civilian version.
