    Distinction Scroll for a Dress Hat or Shako awarded for the Russo-Japanese War, 1905-1917.

    Distinction Scroll for a Dress Hat or Shako awarded for the Russo-Japanese War, 1905-1917.

    Stamped in brass, 122.1 mm wide. The scroll, designed to wear on dress headgear immediately above the cockade, shows the battles in which the unit distinguished itself. In this case, there are three separate battles shown, all of them during the Russo-Japanese War: 11-18 August 1914 at Liaoyang, 28-29 September 1904 at Benspkhu (the latter location is a direct transliteration from Russian), and a series of engagements throughout February 1905. Of course it is highly unusual to see a distinction scroll with such a large number of "unit citations", especially for a war that ended in calamitous defeat for the Russian Empire.

    In excellent condition. The scroll retained its slightly convex shape beautifully and shows only very mild bumps, completely free of noticeable dings or scratches. Attractive uniform toning to the brass, no verdigris or significant blemishes. All four original attachment prongs are present and although bent from wear, appear to be perfectly sound.

    A very uncommon insignia of a serviceman of what was clearly one of most illustrious units of the Russian Imperial Army.

    Please note, penny in our photo is for size reference.
