    Medal for Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, in light bronze.

    Medal for Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, in light bronze.

    Made in brass ("light bronze"), measures 26.3 mm in width. The obverse shows Eastern Orthodox cross standing upon a Muslim crescent. Inscription to the reverse reads, "Not Unto Us, Not Unto Us, But in Thy Name".

    In outstanding, excellent condition. There are no noticeable dings, scratches, edge knocks or any other flaws visible to the naked eye. The raised details of the artwork and inscription are perfect and crisp. The original "gilt" finish (a result of the strike of the heavy press at the mint) is extremely well-preserved in recessed areas on both the obverse and reverse. The medal comes on original ribbon folded into a five-sided shape with its ends stitched together by thread, as worn by the original recipient. Includes original connecting link attached by thread to the ribbon. The ribbon shows a lot of wear but is still clean and sound, and will display beautifully. Overall, a superb original example.

    The light bronze medal was awarded to all army and navy ranks who directly participated in any battles in Bulgaria or on Caucasian front, or in naval engagements in the Black Sea.
