German States: Lippe-Detmold … I can’t belive that!
That’s quite possible. Thanks! … Maybe I should post the cross on the GMIC-Forum again.

It’s a very small medal. ca. 19 mm. I found such a one in a german auction catalogue from 2010. The only additional information in this catalogue is "Slg. Julius 3362".June 29, 2011 at 9:05 pm in reply to: Medaille für die Freiwilligen des V. Armeekorps 1814 #13325
Yes, it’s a piece for soldiers respectively NCOs. A total of only 1708 pieces were awarded, 130 of them with the wider frame for officers.
Anyone interested in this one?

Hi – it’s a Friedrich Order, German: "Friedrichs-Orden" or "Friedrichsorden".
The Friedrich Order was an order of merit of the German Kingdom of Württemberg. It was instituted on the first of January 1830 by the second king of Württemberg, Wilhelm I in remembrance of his father, King Friedrich I.
1870 a knight’s cross Ist Class and a military division with swords were added.
The ribbon was skyblue.
In 1918 the end of the monarchy meant the abolition of the order.
