The blade (36.5 inches) was made by Abraham Stamm in Solingen in the mid-18th century. The hilt and scabbard are later and date from the Napoleonic wars. The royal Portuguese arms were engraved on the hilt, probably in 1816 when Ferdinand VII married a Portuguese princess. The grip may be of rhino horn.

In addition to the German inscription, there is a Spanish religious insription on the blade.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
