This silver award was struck by the city council of Louvain. It was given for civil gallantry, eg stopping a runaway horse and cart, disarming robbers, etc. It has its original silk ribbon, somewhat faded. The medal is about 32mm in diameter.

The pommel arrived safely today... It's a nice little object and really quite tactile... As usual, it was a pleasure to do business with you and I look forward to finding something else in your stock to tempt me.
