    Medal in Memory of the Patriotic War of 1812, in dark bronze (copper), 1813-1820s.

    Medal in Memory of the Patriotic War of 1812, in dark bronze (copper), 1813-1820s.

    Measures 28.6 mm wide, 33.6 mm in height including the eyelet. In outstanding, excellent condition. The details are exceptionally well-preserved and crisp, essentially pristine. The edge and raised border have very minor abrasions, but no bumps or significant knocks. Beautiful even toning to the copper throughout.

    The medal comes on an original St. Anne ribbon of pre- revolutionary era. The ribbon measures about 110 mm (4") in overall length and 40 mm in width; it is folded in a traditional five-sided shape to form a suspension device, complete with original pin attachment. The ribbon shows wear at the bottom but no tears, soiling or deterioration. The connecting link is a replacement.

    Overall, this is a truly superb example, especially considering that the medal is some 200 years old!

    The medal was established in February 1813, following the monumental Russian victory over Napoleon in the Patriotic War of 1812. The dark bronze version was issued to civilians of noble and merchant classes who had made a significant contribution to the war effort or directly participated in combat actions (as partisans or members of civilian militia).
