    Thanks guys! Interesting that this medal was the basis for the Sacred Squadron badge!

    Italian/French medal?

    yes, interesting stuff. Very enigmatic, but a beautiful medal!
  3. Anyone familiar with this joint Italian/French medal?
  4. Just found this nice silver example.
  5. Gentlemen, Can anyone shed light on the nature of this inscription? It appears to be between military medical staff. This particular degen bears a gorgeous Wurttemburg hilt. Any feedback would be appreciated, particularly if some detail regarding the named officers was known!

    French badge ID?

    thanks Peter! Good point... though it seems kind of robustly constructed for a sweetheart or patriotic piece. Still, it’s quite a nice badge!

    Polish Legion Badge

    sure... here’s a c/u of the hallmark. (it’s difficult to see in the photo, but there is a small “W” to the right of the maiden’s head)
