The front features the motto and insignia of the Reichsnährstand which was the government body set up to regulate food production. Script around the edge of the obverse reads "Landesbauernschaft Rheinland, Hauptabteilung II". The reverse reads "Für Leistung im Gartenbau" which indicates this was awarded for "performance in horticulture". The case exterior is pebbled black leatherette which shows minor wear.
