Title German-Austrian lapel badge
Nationality German
Period 1914
Price £15.00

This medal commemorates the summer of 1914, when Austria and Germany went to war against the world. It measures 26mm across. Beneath the image of the two emperors, Kaiser Bill and Kaiser Franz-Josef, there is the inscription 'viribus-unitis [with combined forces] // 1914'. Viribus-unitis was also the name of the famous Austrian battleship.

The image is on paper and the backing and mount are tin with a silvered finish, with a brass pin. Its condition is excellent for its age, with a little fading of the image and minor corrosion to the metalwork. The badge moves around on the pin.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
