    For Service and Bravery, in Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Order of St George, table medal, 1869.

    For Service and Bravery, in Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Order of St George, table medal, 1869.

    In dark bronze, measures 71.3 mm in diameter; weighs 163.3 g. The obverse features sculptured profiles of Empress Catherine II "the Great" (the founder of the Russian Order of St. George) and Emperor Alexander II (the ruling monarch at the time). The inscription along the edge is, "By the Grace of God Catherine II Empress and Alexander II Emperor of Russia." The undercut of the arm of Alexander II bears the name of the die cutter "V. Alekseev". The reverse has a beautifully detailed depiction of a badge of the Order of St. George. The inscription reads: "For Service and Bravery, 1769 - 26 November - 1869". There are Cyrillic letters "P.M.R" near the edge at 6 o'clock that stand for "Die cutter P. Mescheryakov".

    The medal is in excellent condition. The raised details of the bas-relief portraits are exceptionally well preserved and crisp, show almost no wear. Beautiful even dark toning throughout. There are only a couple of tiny dings to the edge, mostly on the reverse and not very noticeable or detractive. A truly superb example of this important Centenary award of the Order of St. George.

    /Mikhail Dyakov, "Medals of the Russian Empire, Part 5, 1855-1881", page 160, fig. 760.1/
