Title St Johann volunteer fire brigade medal
Nationality German
Period c 1880
Price £75.00

This medal, struck in silver, with the rose of Lippe borne on a shield under a municipal crown, was issued for 15 years' service, indicated by the 15 between the words 'Treue' and 'Jahrige'. Lippe is a small state near the Danish border and presumably St Johann is a town within Lippe.

The condition is VF plus, although there is no ribbon.

19th century German fire brigade medals rarely surface in the UK.

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
