Title Franz Josef I small KuK gallantry medal, tailor's copy
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1914
Price £30.00

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.

The ribbon was red and white (missing). This also lacks the suspension ring and is probably of Great War vintage. The condition is otherwise GVF, with some contact wear. It measures 3.1cm across.

I have in the last six months inherited my late father Alan Swain's police memorabilia collection along with much paperwork receipts etc. I would like to pass on to you my thanks for such good dealership with my father going back to the late 80s and well into the 1990s.
