Miniature gilt 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 Wilhelm II and dated ‘1912’ below; diameter 16.27mm (0.64 inch); on replaced correct ribbon. 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’). On 27 January 1912, King Wilhelm II added a bronze class and it was awarded until suppressed at the end of World War I in 1918. The medal is not often found, especially in miniature.
