The Military Long Service Decoration was originally instituted on July 17, 1850 by Prince Friedrich Günther. The awards were conferred upon military personnel who rendered long and faithful service with the Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt army. Separate decorations were created for officers, non-commissioned officers, and enlisted personnel.

The decorations were no longer conferred after Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt signed a military convention with Prussia in 1867. In 1867, Prince Georg created a new set of long service decorations for non-commissioned officers who served with the 3rd Battalion of the 7th Thuringian Infantry Regiment No. 96. The decorations were also conferred upon the non-commissioned officers of the Gendarmerie.

The II Class Silver Bar for 15 Years was conferred in recognition of 15 years of irreproachable service.
