Order of Merit of Berlin
This high German honor was presented to Ambassador Harry Gilmore, U.S. Minister to Berlin, in 1991 for “outstanding contributions to the state of Berlin.” The medallion is in the shape of the Maltese cross with the coat of arms of Berlin in center. Gilmore was the last person to occupy the position. After German reunification, the U.S. embassy returned to Berlin from Bonn, and the position of U.S. Minister to Berlin was dissolved.
