Title Hungarian War Medal 1914-18, cased
Nationality Hungarian
Period c 1920s

This is the medal for the Hungarian part of the Austrian empire when it became a separate country in 1918 at the end of WW1. It has the Hungarian coat of arms on the front, with St Stephen's crown above, and on the reverse a steel helmet with 'Pro Deo et Patria' (for God and country). It is a silver finish on base metal.

It has its original card box, which is damaged at the corners and at the hinge. However, it has a nice clean original ribbon and is in GVF condition with most of its dull tone silver finish.

Good news, my friend, the boot knife has arrived safe and sound. This example will more than fill my collection need.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
