The medal for 4 years of service in the SS (SS-Dienstauszeichnung) was established on October 21, 1938. In appearance, it is similar to the medal for the Heer. A stamped black medal with a ring was worn on a ribbon of dark blue (cornflower blue) color. The SS runes in a wreath are on one side, and a stylized inscription "FÜR TREUE DIENSTE IN DER SS" (for faithful service in the SS), superimposed on a large number 4 on the other side.
Sold with a piece of blue ribbon.
