Schaumburg-Lippe - Faithful Service Cross
Cross for loyal services of the Principality of Schaumburg-Lippe for members of the princely house, issued in 1914 by Prince Adolph von Schaumburg-Lippe. Very clean gold-plated bronze in mint condition. On the reverse, cross-shaped plate with a round screw disc equipped with a bracket, marked with the number "653146" and the design protection mark "D.R.G.M." (see the similarity to the Iron Crosses of the 1st Class, 1914, made of real silver, which are also found in this design with the cross-shaped silver plate and the identical screw disc lettering. A comparison with the discs of these Iron Crosses certainly shows that the discs were coined from the same tool).
Unique possibility to ever obtain this extremely rare cross with only 36 total awards.
