Title Nicholas II Imperial Russian medal for Military Zeal
Nationality Russian
Period c 1894-1915
Price £100.00

This award was granted to other ranks for meritorious service in the years before WW1 and in the early stages. There were two sizes of gold and two of silver, of which this is the smaller version of the latter (3.1cm diameter).

Its condition is good very fine, but it has obviously been worn in contact with other medals, having a fair degree of contact marking either side of the emperor's bust and on his neck. However, there is little or no edge bruising, except for a small edge knock at about 2 o'clock. The ribbon is obviously missing and it was normally attached by a small loop of silver wire, folded over in an oval.

Just a note to confirm that the [helmet plate centre] has arrived safely. It is a superb piece. Thank you.

I am more and more pleased with the sword, and am wondering whether to do an article on it...
