"Imtiyaz" medal for discussion.

Recommended Posts

My friend bought this medal, but I have some doubts about it.

I'm not an expert on Turkish awards and quality of medal looks strange for me.

Will be appreciate for any opinions about.

Your friends Imtiyaz Medal looks OK to me...as we know Imtiyaz Medal was established in 1882,and came in two classes, gold and silver.

I would recommend your friend to make sure that this piece is silver,also the weight should be 21-22 grams and 37.5mm in dimension.

Hello ,

Medal is original and in good condition. But the Silver suspension and the ribbon is new and later attachment.

Best Wishes ,

For information to whom it may interest ;

for the later minted medals such as Big Imtiyaz , Liyakat , Donanma-İ iane , Greek War and etc.. The weight examination is OK but for the older minted Ottoman medals , it is not a way to check originality as many of the originals ( even same medal ) has different measurements .

Best Wishes ,

I have been surprised by poor quality of surface and herd of medal.

That's why I need more skilled colleagues opinions.

Is it only the medal or the ring attaching the medal to the suspension section included?

It is the complete medal, but not in my collection.

There are both medals, silver and gold, in the original case for both medals together.
