medals

A vast field, covering many eras and countries. Specialist reference books on every period and country can be found. One book - Price Guide: Orders and Decorations, Germany 1871-1945 by Detlev Niemann (2004) - is highly recommended (I have several in stock at 50 each plus postage).

militaria item 1935 Jubilee medal on lady's bow
- British
This was given to the good and great in 1935 to commemorate the Jubilee of George V and Queen Mary. The men received it on a conventional loose ribbon with pin suspension; the women received it in this fashion with a bow.

militaria item WW2 War & Defence Medals
- British
This is the classic pair of campaign awards for WW2; indeed, other than the India Service Medal and the War Medal in silver for the Canadians, they were the only circular medals issued by the British Empire in WW2.

militaria item KuK small gallantry award, silver
- Austrian
This is the third grade of precious metal gallantry awards of the old Austrian army. The first was a large medal in gold, followed by a large one in silver, this one being the third class, a smaller one in silver. It has the name of the artist (Tautenhayn) under the right shoulder of the emperor (Franz Joseph).

militaria item KuK gallantry medal, 3rd class, pot metal with wrong ribbon
- Austrian
This is the small (3.30cm diameter) KuK bravery medal with Kaiser Franz Joseph's bust on the obverse and 'Der Tapferkeit' on the reverse. Apart from the ribbon being that for the wound medal, it is almost certainly a contemporary tailor's copy, as it lacks the designer's name, which should be under the bust.

Struck in bronze with a Latin logo ('Sapientiae Studii Viennensis') surrounding an image of a queen in a Renaissance window. The reverse has the logo 'Zur // Erinnerung // An das // Kriegsjahr // 1914', all above a laurel wreath.

militaria item 3rd Mid Lothian Volunteers medal, unhallmarked silver
- Scottish
This nice medal, with a view of Edinburgh city surmounted by the castle on the reverse with the motto 'The Westerns / 23rd November 1803' on the obverse, was awarded as a commemorative item to an infantry volunteer unit raised at the termination of the peace of Amiens (1802) between France and GB in 1803.

militaria item St George medal, 4th class
- Russian
This is the lowest grade of this prestigious order, Russia's principle gallantry award from the time of the Napoleonic Wars until the 1917 revolution. It shows the image of Nicholas II on the face and on the reverse 'For gallantry' is inscribed in Cyrillic, together with the class of the medal below the serial number.

militaria item Bundesrepublik horse breeding award, gold class
- German
This would have been mounted on a wooden plaque, hence the holes at the corners. The design is taken from the Nazi era award, whose main difference is a capital 'R' directly under the middle feet of the horse.

militaria item War Service cross with swords, 2nd class
- German
This could well be a ground find, or perhaps dug out of someone's attic, because only maybe 25% of the original gilt finish survives. However, it has the number 74 punched into the ring, which indicates the maker Carl Meurer & Sohn from Oberstein. These crosses rarely have any maker's mark, which makes up somewhat for the condition.

militaria item Nicholas II Imperial Russian medal for Military Zeal
- Russian
This award was granted to other ranks for meritorious service in the years before WW1 and in the early stages. There were two sizes of gold and two of silver, of which this is the smaller version of the latter (3.1cm diameter).

testimonials

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.
