militaria item Kaiser Karl bronze gallantry medal
- Austrian
This is the basic KuK award for bravery in the reign of Kaiser Karl, who succeeded Franz Joseph on his death in the winter of 1916. He reigned until November 1918, when he abdicated and went into exile. It is an official issue, as the designer's name Kautsch is in raised letters on the emperor's shoulder - tailors' copies do not have this feature.

militaria item Franz Josef I small KuK gallantry medal, tailor's copy
- Austrian
Note the lack of maker's initials on the shoulder of the emperor's bust - this mark was always found on official issue medals. However, there would appear to be a maker's mark on the reverse ('S.G.A.'). Typically this would have been worn on the tunic, while the original would have been treasured in its box.

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.

On 29 November 1915, bars were authorised for 2nd, 3rd and 4th awards of the same class of the medal. This was awarded to NCOs and men for bravery in action and was instituted as a medal in 1789 as the Tapferkeitsmedaille. There were several sizes of both silver and gold awards for varying degrees of courage.

militaria item Signum Laudis medal, silver
- Austrian
Instituted in 1890 for outstanding services in war and peace, this medal used the red and white horizontally striped ribbon of the Medal for Bravery (as in this case) when awarded in wartime to officers, or a plain red ribbon for non-military persons of rank. In peacetime, the plain red ribbon was used in all cases.

- Austrian
This medal (4cm) commemorates Baron Trenk (mid-18th century), who commanded the Pandurs in the time of Empress Maria Theresa in all the wars against Frederick the Great.
