Prussian General Honour Decoration, II class, silver (Allgemeines Ehrenzeichen, II. Klasse, Silber) - Large silver medal with ring 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 Friedrich Wilhelm III; diameter 39.31mm (1.55 inches); slight age oxidisation, age toning and light surface scratches; on original ribbon mounted for wear (the medal is mounted with the reverse outwards). 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’). New dies were introduced in 1847 and used until the award was suppressed at the end of World War I in 1918.
