Marked: "München 9" and with Adolf Hitler signature on reverse.
The German Order with Oak leaves and swords was designed by Benno von Arent.
The German Order took the form of a black enamel cross with gold eagles between the arms. The centerpiece was the "Golden Party Badge" and a facsimile of Hilters signature appeared on the reverse, reinforcing the personal nature of the award. The award was to be hung around the neck from distinctive ribbon identical to that of the "Blood Order".
