This is the Duchy of Anhalt’s 1914 Friedrich Cross 2nd Class for Non Combatants. Anhalt was one of Germany’s smaller duchies. It fielded one infantry regiment. The decoration was its equivalent to Prussia’s 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class. They also had a 1st Class award equal to the 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class. Like the Prussians, the 2nd Class was awarded in classes for Combatants and Non Combatants. The difference between the two rested strictly in their ribbons. This cross measures 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2.” Its obverse features a crown, 1914, and the cypher “F.” The decoration’s reverse displays “Für Verdienst im Kriege (For Service in War).” The green and white ribbon on this example is for Non Combatants.
