The Officerscross was instituted in 1844 by King William II for faithfull and loyal service. From 1844 until 1866 the cross was issued as a roman number (XV, XX etc) for the number of years in service surrounded by an oakwrath with swords attached on a ribbon yellow-white-blue. From 1866 on the insignia was attached to a cross which was to be worn from a ribbon. See the medal.

Since these insignia have only been in service for 22 years, they are fairly rare.
