3rd Reich award presented by Hermann Goring, a neck chain of honour with bust of Hermann Goring, the 10 alternating plaques of swastika and eagle conjoined to allow the bust to be suspended from the lower loop, fitted presentation box with eagle and swastika to the lid. The bust engraved '1940 Hermann Goring Auszeicchnung fur die industrie' (award for industry), the reverse of the swastika plaques stamped with an A.
