Der tapferkeit - austrian bravery medal 2nd model 1859-1866

Recommended Posts

Dear friend, here is austrian bravery medal, der tapferkeit, i would say second model from period 1859-1866, 1st class, (40mm), silver, with original patina and original ribbon. On ribbon is attached small text, i guess on awarding, date is visible 28.6.1866, but other text i cant understand. What do you think about it? Could someone maybe read text on ribbon? What do you think on her value?

thx,

veljko

Hi there,

here is the translation which makes this an interesting piece:

On the 28th June 1866 during the battle of Soor, Wilhelm von Knobelsdorff , after being wounded, took this Austrian medal of bravery off the chest of  a killed, totally dismembered Austrian officer. (Wilhelm= later GenMaj. z.D.; Oberhauptmann)
