Mecklenburg Schwerin War Service Cross 2nd Class Mini
Interesting miniature award. Mecklenburg Schwerin War Service Cross Second Class in miniature which was the parallel state award of the Iron Cross Second Class. On the obverse FF is Friedrich Franz. On the reverse "Fur Auszeichnung Im Krieg" translates roughly to "For Military Service". Medal and device have a rich gold finish. The ribbon is the typical Prussian iron cross color scheme which I would attribute to this being a non-regulation medal and more along the lines of jewelry that the awardee's spouse might wear. The package has the look of having been together for a long time. A nice attractive miniature of a desirable medal.
