Rarely seen SS certificate of merit for services given to the “Land und Stadtwacht”, 1p. 10 ½” x 14 ½”, “Field Headquarters”, Feb. 2, 1944. The award is issued to “Landwachtman Justin Strasser”, a land guard in Michelsdorf, Oberdonau, and it bears a facsimile signature of Himmler at bottom. Two minuscule tears in blank areas, with no paper loss, else very good. The “Land und Stadtwacht” were essentially auxiliary police charged with maintaining order over the nearly eight million foreign (slave) laborers working in Germany from mid-1943, on. They were particularly responsible for preventing escapes and any kind of intermixing between the foreign laborers and the resident German civilians.
