Miniature silvered bronze medal with eyelet for ribbon suspension; the face inscribed ‘VERDIENST UM DEN STAAT’ (Merit to the State) within a laurel wreath; the reverse with the crowned cipher of King Friedrich Wilhelm III; diameter 14.53mm (0.57 inch); on original ribbon (the medal has been mounted with the reverse outwards). The Decoration was founded by King Friedrich Wilhelm III on 18 January 1810 to reward meritorious service to the State in peacetime (‘zur Belohnung für Verdienste in Friedenszeiten’). New dies were introduced in 1847 and used until the award was suppressed at the end of World War I in 1918.
