Physical Description and Item Details

The III Class Bar (1831-1868) is a rectangular bar constructed of blackened iron/silver. The obverse is smooth and bears the inscription "L G XII" with a Baden coat of arms in the centre. With a smooth border.


On February 18, 1831, a series of long service decorations were introduced by Grand Duke Leopold of Baden. The decorations were established to recognise long-serving members of the Baden military, including Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and Enlisted Ranks.

Initially, a I Class Cross for 25 Years was introduced for Officers and a series of clasps for 25, 18, and 12 years of service were introduced for Non-Commissioned Officers and Enlisted Ranks.

The design and denominations of the clasps were changed in 1868. The I Class Bar was for 21 years, the II Class Bar was for 15 years, and the III Class Bar was for 9 years.
