Miniature silvered cross pattée alisée with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a circular central medallion bearing the ‘RI’ cipher of the Italian Republic; the reverse witha circular central medallion inscribed ‘AL / MERITO / DI / SERVIZIO’; diameter 16.7mm (0.66 inch); slight wear to silvering; on original ribbon. The Guardia di Finanza has its origins in the Light Troops Legion (Legione Truppe Leggere) created by King Vittorio Amadeo III of Sardinia on 5 October 1774 with the purpose of protecting the kingdom’s borders and specifically controlling the import and export of products, protecting duties and preventing fraud. The Guardia was formed on 8 April 1881 and its long service awards were instituted in 1908. This example is of Republican issue since 1949.
