    ppsh33, principal military award for Shaumburg-Lippe during WW1, available in combatent and non-combatent versions, (only differance is the ribbon). The Cross for loyal service 1914-18, 10,397 names appear on the award roll, given to all ranks/classes, only one class, however a pinback was available for upper ranks ! value...75 loose at a dealer, private 50, however boxed add another 30-40 IMO. The cross is shown below...

    hi oradour , thank for the info , was banging my head off the wall thring to get a price range on this. oh well i feel the medal fairy is about to raid my wallet. i have crossed over from 33/45 awards and medals within the last year and wonder why it took me so long ,the range and quality of awards appears endless . have discovered a major addiction to little black crosses . thanks again. paul,
