    Medal for the Pacification of Hungary and Transylvania, 1849.

    Medal for the Pacification of Hungary and Transylvania, 1849.

    In silver, measures 29.2 mm in width, 35.1 mm in height including the eyelet; weighs 10.7 g without suspension and ribbon. The obverse shows Imperial double-headed eagle, with inscription along the edge in old Slavonic, "God is With Us. People Take Heed and Submit".

    In outstanding, excellent condition. The raised details are beautifully preserved and crisp, practically free of wear. There are just a couple of tiny scratches near the right head of the eagle, nearly unnoticeable without a magnifying glass, but the background field is almost pristine otherwise. The edge is without bumps or dings. This superb example is almost impossible to upgrade.

    When Hungary seceded from the Austrian Empire in 1848 Austrian Emperor Frances Joseph requested military help from Nicholas I. The Russian Emperor ever concerned with the spread of republican ideas was happy to oblige. Within a year 140 thousand strong Russian army under Field Marshal Paskevich invaded Hungary from Poland whereas another army broke into Transylvania from Moldavia. The revolt was crushed by August 1849. The medal was established the following year and awarded to all ranks that took part in the campaign. A little over 212,000 have been issued.

    /See Dimitri Romanov, "The Orders, Medals and History of Imperial Russia", pp. 158-159/, also Mikhail Diakov, "Medals of the Russian Empire, Part 4, 1825-1855", p. 132/.
