Frederick Cross, I Class
Estimated market value:
The Medal was established by Duke Frederick II of Anhalt and was awarded in recognition of meritorious service in time of war.
It could be awarded to officers, military officials, non-commissioned officers and other ranks, as well as other persons, without regard for rank or status, who showed particular excellence in the theatre of war or on the home front in support of the war.
The award was strictly intended for individuals from the Anhalt region. However, an officer not from the region could receive the award, if he commanded a large number of men from Anhalt.
The cross was discontinued in 1918.
The I Class Cross is a non-official award because it was planned, but never implemented.
