    Ade is correct, it is a Austro-Hungarian medal......Military Long Service Cross for non-commissioned officers and other ranks, II class for 12 years’ service (Militärdienstzeichen für Unteroffiziere und Mannschaften, 2. Klasse für 12 Jahre), 1890-1913 issue, bronze Leopold cross with laterally-pierced loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a circular central medallion bearing the letters XII ( 12) within a laurel wreath border, the arms of the cross with stippled panels within beaded borders. The Decoration was instituted on 12 March 1890 to reward long and faithful service in the Austro-Hungarian armed forces and was issued in different versions for officers, for non-commissioned officers and for other ranks and for completion of various periods of service. This example is of the third version for other ranks on completion of 12 year’s loyal service, awarded from 1893 until 1913. It is on the wrong ribbon, see here.....
    Prost ! Steve.
