Silver-edged white-enamelled Urdy cross with silver oak leaves and acorns between the arms, on laterally-pierced ball suspension; the face with a circular central red enamel medallion bearing the monogram ‘ФI’ for Ferdinand I, institutor of the Order, within a white enamel ring inscribed in silver letters ‘ЭА ГРАЖДАНСКА ЗАСЛУГА’ (for Civil Merit); the reverse with a circular central red enamel medallion bearing the Bulgarian lion rampant with a shield with the Saxon coat of arms imposed on its breast within a white enamel ring inscribed in silver letters with the date ‘2 ABГУCTЪ 1891’ (2 August 1891); a slight crack and old repair to the top of the upper arm of the face and reverse; on bow ribbon for ladies. The Order for Civil Merit was instituted on 2 August 1891 to be conferred only on civilians and for exemplary service or acts of merit earning the gratitude of the country. This example is from the reign of Ferdinand I and thus issued prior to 1918. A good example.
