A very nice non-combatant Franco-Prussian war medal here. Good but not great condition, some visible surface rust is present on the reverse. Steel construction (as opposed to bronze medals which were specifically awarded for combatant roles.) The center inscription on the obverse is "Für Pflichttreue im Kriege" (For devotion to duty in the war). On the reverse the wreath on the cross is of oak leaves. Original ribbon.
