    Priest's Cross in Commemoration of the Crimean War of 1853- 1856.

    Priest's Cross in Commemoration of the Crimean War of 1853- 1856.

    In dark bronze; measures 102.4 mm tall including the eyelet, 58.6 mm wide; weighs 33.8 grams not including the ribbon and connecting link. The obverse shows combined monograms of Nicholas I and Alexander II. Inscription on the reverse, "We Put Our Trust in Thee, oh Lord, and Will Never Be Ashamed".

    In very fine to excellent condition, far better than the average. Fine details of the sunburst, ciphers and inscription are extremely well preserved and crisp. There are some light polishing marks from cleaning visible at close examination, and only minimal wear to the high points of the cyphers. There are minor abrasions to the eyelet and area immediately below from friction with the connecting link. The cross is entirely free from the usual edge knocks. Comes with beautifully preserved, full length original St. Vladimir neck ribbon, over 20" (nearly 50 cm) long. The connecting link in dark bronze appears to be original to the cross.

    The cross was awarded to all members of the Russian Orthodox Clergy who served during the War of 1853-56 ("Crimean War").
