    Patriotic War of 1812 Centennial Medal, circa 1912.

    Patriotic War of 1812 Centennial Medal, circa 1912.

    State Mint issue in light bronze, 28.3 mm wide. Obverse shows portrait of Emperor Alexander I. The quotation on the reverse reads: "1812. This Glorious Year Went By, But the Feats Undertaken in It Will Never Pass. 1912".

    In very fine condition. There is even wear to the obverse, apparently from cleaning; the details of the Emperor's bas- relief are nevertheless very nicely defined. The reverse shows practically no wear, and the letters are extremely crisp. The edge is free of noticeable knocks or dings. Attractive toning to the bronze on both sides (there is a minor blemish to the obverse, far less noticeable in real life than in our enlarged photos).

    The medal was awarded in 1912 to all military and non- military participants and organizers of the official ceremonies and military parades marking the anniversary of the victory over Napoleon.

    /See Dimitri Romanov, "The Orders, Medals and History of Imperial Russia", pp. 250-251/
