    Large Silver Medal for Zeal - Nicholas II, 1894 - 1915.

    Large Silver Medal for Zeal - Nicholas II, 1894 - 1915.

    In silver, 51.6 mm wide; weighs 58.0 g not including the ribbon and connecting link. Features bas-relief of Emperor Nicholas II beautifully executed with extraordinary precision and skill. The raised inscription on the obverse is "B[y the] G[race of God] Nicholas II, Emperor and Autocrat of All Russia". This version of the medal does not have a signature of the die-cutter.

    In excellent condition. The details of the portrait and lettering are extremely well-preserved and crisp. There are some minor dings and scratches, but they do not significantly detract from overall impression from this magnificent piece. The background field of the medallion is beautifully smooth with very attractive even dark toning. The raised border has only very mild wear, no significant edge knocks. The eyelet is likewise nicely preserved. Comes on a piece of original period St. Vladimir ribbon in moiré silk which is correct for the medal. Total length of the ribbon is approximately 15 cm (nearly 6"). The ribbon shows moderate wear and light fading only, no tears or soiling. The connecting link is replacement.

    /M. Diakov "Medals of the Russian Empire, Part 7, 1894- 1917", p. 38, fig. 1138.1; D. Peters, "Award Medals of Russia, XIX - Early XX Century", pp. 21, 22/.
