HISTORY:
On January 30th, 1938, Hitler instituted the Faithful Service Decoration, in three classes, to recognize long-serving civil servants and public works personnel. The decorations were intended to be an incentive for the civilian population to foster workplace loyalty and create a stable civil service. The three classes of the decoration consisted of the special class for fifty years of continuous service with the same employer in the free economic system, the first class decoration for forty years of service, and the second class for twenty-five years service. All three classes followed the same basic design, with minor variations.
