Blackened ‘Kriegsmetall’ alloy Maltese cross with loop for ribbon suspension between the upper arms; the face with a circular central medallion bearing the crowned cipher of King Wilhelm II; the reverse with a circular central medallion inscribed ‘FÜR KRIEGS-HILFSDIENST’ (for War Aid Merit) above an oak wreath; on possibly original ribbon. The Cross was instituted by King Wilhelm II on 5 December 1916 to be awarded as a recognition of outstanding patriotic war aid service, regardless of rank or status. It was suppressed in 1924. A very good example.
