Title KuK gallantry medal, 3rd class, pot metal with wrong ribbon
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1915-16
Price £18.00

This is the small (3.30cm diameter) KuK bravery medal with Kaiser Franz Joseph's bust on the obverse and 'Der Tapferkeit' on the reverse. Apart from the ribbon being that for the wound medal, it is almost certainly a contemporary tailor's copy, as it lacks the designer's name, which should be under the bust.

The condition is somewhat scruffy as the pot metal has lost most of its bronze finish.

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.
