Prussia's General Honor Decoration, a fine looking medal imo. 

From Wikipedia

The General Honor Decoration (German: Allgemeines Ehrenzeichen) was a decoration of Prussia. The decoration can trace its origin back to awards established in 1793 by KingFrederick William III of Prussia. The various levels of the decoration recognized peacetime merit to Prussia.[2] These awards were often to commemorate long and particularly meritorious service or for special contributions from people who would not be considered for appointment to an order due to their rank. In general, recipients were lower and mid-level officials and officers.
