Title Nicholas II Imperial Russian medal for Military Zeal
Nationality Russian
Period c 1894-1915
Price £100.00

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).

Its condition is good very fine, but it has obviously been worn in contact with other medals, having a fair degree of contact marking either side of the emperor's bust and on his neck. However, there is little or no edge bruising, except for a small edge knock at about 2 o'clock. The ribbon is obviously missing and it was normally attached by a small loop of silver wire, folded over in an oval.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
