Behold a rare and historically significant Long Service Award, commemorating 22 years (XXII) of unwavering and devoted service, hailing from the venerable Duchy of Nassau. This coveted decoration was bestowed upon both NCOs (Non-Commissioned Officers) and enlisted men, representing a cherished token of recognition in this diminutive yet distinguished state.

The Duchy of Nassau, though small in size, held a select number of decorations, making this award even more exclusive. Its history dates back to 1834 when it was first instituted and continued to be conferred until 1864. The legacy of Nassau was forever altered in 1866, as it became absorbed into the greater Prussian realm during the war with Austria, marking the end of its independence.

Remarkably, this medal, now at least 186 years old, has stood the test of time. It remains in exceptionally fine condition, a testament to its quality craftsmanship and the esteem with which it was held. Its original wide, light blue ribbon, thoughtfully preserved, adds an authentic touch to this piece of history.

It is worth noting that this offering marks a significant milestone for our establishment, as it represents the very first decoration from Nassau that we have ever presented. Its rarity, age, and historical significance make it a unique and sought-after addition to any discerning collector's repertoire.

At our establishment, dedicated to curating high-end original military artifacts, we are thrilled to introduce this extraordinary Duchy of Nassau Long Service Award to our esteemed clientele. Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to own a piece of Nassau's history and heritage, a true gem in the world of military decorations.
