This is an amazing set containing a general major’s Lippe-Detmold War Service Cross 2nd Class and its award document. Lippe-Detmold was a very small principality that only fielded one single Infanterie Bataillon. The War Service Cross 2nd Class was a pinback award that was issued during the 1914 through 1918 time period. The decoration is gold-toned, and measures 1 3/4 x 1 3/4.” The decoration is of the highest quality. Its detail and condition is extraordinary. It actually was awarded from 17 January 1915 until 4 February 1921. The award document is included with the decoration. It displays a photograph of Fürst Leopold IV of Lippe-Detmold on the left. The document was issued on 17 October 1917 to a Generalmajor von Blauel. It appears that the general was attached to the VII. Armeekorps.
