Title Small silver Medal for Bravery, Franz Joseph I, with bar for 2nd award
Nationality Austrian
Period 1914-18
Price £60.00

On 29 November 1915, bars were authorised for 2nd, 3rd and 4th awards of the same class of the medal. This was awarded to NCOs and men for bravery in action and was instituted as a medal in 1789 as the Tapferkeitsmedaille. There were several sizes of both silver and gold awards for varying degrees of courage.

The condition is GVF with some contact wear to both sides. The ribbon, although original, is a little on the grubby side and has faded somewhat.

testimonials

I have in the last six months inherited my late father Alan Swain's police memorabilia collection along with much paperwork receipts etc. I would like to pass on to you my thanks for such good dealership with my father going back to the late 80s and well into the 1990s.

Many thanks for sending the Troddels to me. I was very pleased that they were in the fine condition that you described.
