Title Verdienstkreuz with campaign wreath, 1st class
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1970
Sold

This excellent COPY of an extremely rare order, originally only given to generals and introduced in 1848, is marked with the maker's punch of Rudolph Souval of Vienna and a pre-1918 Imperial Austrian Mint acceptance punch.

There is minor enamel damage to the wreath, the remaining enamel virtually perfect. The central lettering is in gold, with the remainder of the cross in silver with enamel finish. The box is a Prussian box for some other order.
