    Medal for the War of 1853-1856 (Crimean War), light bronze version for combatants.

    Medal for the War of 1853-1856 (Crimean War), light bronze version for combatants.

    In brass ("light bronze"); measures 28.0 mm wide, weighs 10.4 grams without ribbon and connecting link. Obverse shows monograms of the two emperors, Nicholas I and Alexander II.

    In very fine to excellent condition, one of the better examples we have handled in recent years. There is only mild wear to the high points of the monograms and crowns; the raised details are still very well preserved. Both sides have a few light scratches but no pitting or significant dings. The edge is perfect, without any of the usual bumps and knocks. The brass exhibit uniform and attractive toning throughout, free of blemishes or oxidation spot. The medal comes on a Soviet era suspension with new St. George ribbon.

    Est. 1856, this medal was officially known in Russia as the Medal for the Eastern War. The light bronze medal was awarded to all military ranks who had taken part in combat on all theaters of the war.

    /See Dimitri Romanov, "The Orders, Medals and History of Imperial Russia", pp. 174-175/; also Mikhail Diakov, "Medals of the Russian Empire, Part 5, 1855-1881", p. 67/.
