Title Nicholas II Imperial Russian medal for Military Zeal
Nationality Russian
Period c 1894-1915
Price £125.00

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.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
