Miniature tombak (light red bronze) circular medal with eyelet for ribbon suspension; the face with the crowned cipher of Duke Friedrich II centrally, circumscribed ‘Treue Dienste bei der Fahne’ (Loyal Service under the Colours); the reverse with the Roman numeral ‘XII’ (= 12); diameter 16.26mm (0.64 inch); age-toned; on replaced correct ribbon. The Award was instituted by Duke Friedrich II on 1 January 1914 to replace the previous buckle-form (Bandschnalle) awards and suppressed at the end of 1918. The population of the Duchy of Anhalt was less than 350,000 at the time of World War I and its Decorations are not often found, especially in miniature.
