Kingdom of Serbia - Unusual 1912 Gold Bravery Medal

Recommended Posts

This piece was sold couple of weeks ago on ebay. I have never seen a medal like that before, back side looks just like the front side of the Silver Medal and the front side is also very different from the ones we usually see. Rare variant, prototype or something else?

Maybe Prototype, but could it be a mis-strike too? Were both medals made in the same place?

Looks a bit like an unofficial concoction or a downright fake.

To be honest real or fake I don't like. Same seller offered the regular medal at the same time, this one achieved much bigger price so who knows...
Rest of the pictures.

Hello Gentleman!

Nice topic Paja! :)

It is original Serbian gold bravery medal, "maiden" 1912 type 2! Very rare medal!!

There are three types of "maiden" medals; Type 1 with inscription 1912 under the maiden, type 1 without the inscription, and type 2 with Serbian coat of arms on the reverse instead of "for bravery"! Gold plated bronze 30mm!

My favorite Serbian bravery medals!! I must be some kind of feminist :D

Best regards

Joseph

It's Cyrillic signature ЂЈ 1912. ЂЈ or ĐJ are the author's initials, Ђорђе Јовановић (Đorđe Jovanović).
Anyway, very nice medal!

I think that we should start a new topic: Serbian bravery medals through history

nickstrenk, you have a beautiful collection of Serbian bravery medals, thanks for excellent photos!

Daffy Duck, that's a nice idea, putting all of them on one place would great. Unfortunately I can't contribute that much as I only have a few of them in my collection.
