Rene, this medal definitely was issued in 1916 during reign of Ahmed Shah.

But the correct name of this medal is still unknown to us ...

Rabino calls it a Bravery Medal, he certainly knew his coins and marine mammals (seals) but whether he was so hot on medals I am not sure

Dear Friends,

interesting reading, even after 5 years, since I just obtained one of these and doing some research.
The German designation for this medal is "Silver Military Merit Medal for Foreigners" ( silberne Militär-Verdienstmedaille für Ausländer ).
Is the year on my medal 1320? I'm not so good with arabic numerals...

regards
Arne

Why is the front and back of your medal opposite? According to one of my Ottoman Imdias medals, the above figure in Arabic means 1333, which is the Gregorian calendar in 1914, so you can follow this calculation. But I feel that this one of you is in the period of the Pahlavi Dynasty, pay attention to the crown.

Introduction to the Pahlavi dynasty, pay attention to the picture on the right

Thanks for your reply on my question.
Farsi has a different numeral system, as I understand it.
Please take a look here to see, how I came to 1320.

Also the year you calculated is after the Islamic Lunar Calendar, while the medal is dated in Iranian Solar Calendar.
That would be 1941 for 1320 or 1954 for 1333.

Why is the front and back of my medal opposite?  Good question, I would like to know too.

Thanks Paul!

So I got it all right.

Would be interesting to know, how many were awarded to Wehrmacht personel in 1941.

Thanks oamotme.
That was the Shah until 1907. I wonder why his name appears on a medal dated 1941?

1320 is 1901 in lunar hejira so  it would be ok for muzaffar. I dont think the solar callender wad introduced until the pahlavi era.
