Title Kaiser Karl bronze gallantry medal
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1917-18
Price £25.00

This is the basic KuK award for bravery in the reign of Kaiser Karl, who succeeded Franz Joseph on his death in the winter of 1916. He reigned until November 1918, when he abdicated and went into exile. It is an official issue, as the designer's name Kautsch is in raised letters on the emperor's shoulder - tailors' copies do not have this feature.

The ribbon would have been red and white arranged in the form of a triangle. The medal (31mm diameter) is made of bronze and its condition is GVF.

I'd just like to thank you for the SS Buckle, this has to be one of the best items I have yet and am very happy with it.

I collected my iron cross this am from the sorting office. Thank you for the medal; as before it's a very nice one. Thank you for your prompt service and I look forward to purchasing more in the future from you and your wonderful site.
