Re: Medals "For Long And Distinguished Service"

here's mine. I'm still convinced, as a long-time GDR awards collector, of the east-german production. The really neat and precise soldering of the small loop is identical to what can be seen in the east-german production. Engraving is fine; the very fine pebbling on the reverse is not common; unknown in GDR medals (to my knowledge).
The gold wash is mattish, denoting the GDR technique of the early 80ies, not the brillant and unoxydable wash of the late productions.
Cloth is of the same specific fabric: a really dense, narrow and synthetic thread, slightly brillant.

Re: Medals "For Long And Distinguished Service".

Here is another example. The Amharic name is "ለረዥምና ታዋቂ አገልግሎት" (Lärävəməna Tawaḳu ʾägäləgəlotə).
