Title Atjeh Campaign (1873-85) miniature medal
Nationality Dutch
Period 1885
Sold

The Atjeh Campaign took place in Indonesia and was fought to suppress a rebellion against Dutch rule. Atjeh was a province of Dutch East Indies with a largely Muslim population, famous more recently for suffering high casualties in the 2004 tsunami.

The condition is excellent, although the ribbon is somewhat scruffy and faded. The medal measures 20mm across and is made of unhallmarked silver.

Just to let you know that the kokarde [cockade] arrived today. Looks great. Definitely original.

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...
