Military Long Service Decoration, Type IV, II Class Medal for 12 Years
Estimated market value:
The original decoration was founded by Grand Duke Carl Friedrich in 1834, and it was awarded to all members of the Saxe-Weimar military, with no consideration of rank, in the form of a cross.
The Type IV decorations were founded by Grand Duke Wilhelm Ernst on December 20, 1913 with the new form of a cross and two medals.
The cross was awarded to Non-Commissioned Officers and enlisted men in recognition of long, faithful, and meritorious service.
The years employed during actual wartime counted double towards the number of years served by the recipient.
