Miniature circular copper medal with eyelet for ribbon suspension; the face with the crowned cipher of Grand Duke Friedrich Franz II (‘FF’) centrally, circumscribed ‘Treue Dienste’ (Faithful Service) above and ‘Reserve Landwehr’ below; the reverse inscribed ‘Landwehr- / Dienstaus- / zeichnung / II. Klasse’; diameter 16.32mm (0.64 inch); on a correct paper representation of the ribbon. The Award was instituted by Grand Duke Friedrich Franz II on 1 August 1874 ‘für alle Unteroffiziere und Wehrmänne, welche ihre Dienstpflicht in der Reserve und Landwehr vorwurfsfrei erfüllt und einen Feldzug mitgemacht haben, oder bei außergewöhnlicher Veranlassung mindestens drei Monate zum aktiven Dienst einberufen waren’ (for all non-commissioned officers and other ranks who blamelessly fulfilled their service in the Reserve or Territorial Army and took part in a campaign or for exceptional reasons spent at least three months on active service). The Award was originally of buckle (Bandschnalle) form but this was changed to a medal, as in the current example, in 1913. The Award was suppressed in 1924.
