Also the shield is the plain arms of the Hohenzollern family, so it might possibly be some type of award for personal service to the family? Or perhaps the Principality of Hohenzollern as opposed to the Royal House of Hohenzollern? I don't know, I'm just making guesses! :?Kjell-Bjarne said:Hello Max,
Für Treue u. Verdienst translates as For loyalty and achievement
The shield bears the Prussian colors, of course.
That's about all the information I can provide. Maybe some of the other members can add more.
