Title Kaiser Karl bronze gallantry medal
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1917-18
Sold

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.

The ribbon would have been red and white arranged in the form of a triangle. The medal (31mm diameter) is made of bronze and its condition is near EF.

Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
