Medal bar to a civil servant

Medaille für Treue in der Arbeit, König Albert, 1894-1902
Verdienstkreuz in Silber
Medaille für Treue in der Arbeit, König Friedrich August III., 1904-1918
Silver. Medals mounted in a civil bar with dark green cloth backing, almost mint
The wearer served under 3 kings. König Georg, 1902-1904 is not represented here, as probably the decoration in the middle was awarded in place of the usual loyal work medal. The König Georg medal is the rarest of the series.
