Medal Commemorating the 300th Anniversary of the Romanov Dynasty, 1913.

In brass gilt, measures 33.7 mm in height incl. eyelet, 28.2 mm in width; weighs 13.0 g not including the suspension and connecting link. Unlike most others, this version was gilded by the original manufacturer, has a distinctly wide raised border on the obverse, and features bas-relief portraits in unusually high tri-dimensional profile.

In very fine to excellent condition. The raised artwork is free of noticeable wear of kind; the details of the portraits and lettering are perfect and extremely crisp. The original gilt finish is well-preserved on both sides with only minimal patina that adds character. There is a scrape to the raised edge at approximately 7 o'clock, possibly a result of amateur test for gold content. There is also a very mild, barely noticeable bump to the edge at approx. 10 o'clock. The medal comes with perfectly preserved and clean original Romanov ribbon mounted on a recent, Soviet-style suspension in brass.

To summarize, this is an uncommonly attractive example of a relatively common Russian medal.
