    Medal for the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78, in dark bronze.

    Medal for the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78, in dark bronze.

    Measures 26.3 mm wide. 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 excellent condition. Shows only very light wear; the details are extremely well preserved and crisp. Comes on a Soviet era suspension with new St. George / St. Andrew ribbon.

    The dark bronze medal was awarded to all participants of the war who had not taken direct part in combat. Interestingly, there were far fewer of the dark bronze issues (335424) than of the light bronze for combatants (635921).

    /See Dimitri Romanov,"The Orders, Medals and History of Imperial Russia", pp. 196-197/
