Awarded 1850 by the provisional government to former soldiers of the Schleswig-Holstein Army for the uprising in 1848/49 against Danish rule. It was cast from the iron from the wreck of the Danish warship "Christian VIII.",  destroyed in shallow waters off Eckernförde. The uprising failed, although actively supported by Austria, Prussia and the German states.
Blackened cast iron with some slight age corrosion with a length of older unworn ribbon.
A simple decoration with a historic significance, offered today at around 160-200 Euros.
