Title Baltic miniature medal (Hawkesworth Fawkes RN)
Nationality British
Period c 1855
Sold

This little medal commemorates the Royal Navy's campaign in the Baltic against the Russian fleet, 1854-55. It is named to Hawkesworth Fawkes RN, who was on the active list in March 1875 as a Captain (as of 22.10.70). Sadly, it is only a disc, hence the price.

This example is named directly on the edge of the medal, unlike the Crimean example on the site.

The condition is GVF. (NB: The gold colour of the last photos showing the naming is because of using an indoor lighting system.)

testimonials

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
