Serbia - Royal Household medal

Recommended Posts

I really like France, as you can came across so nice findings related to Serbia.

This is my latest acquisition, Royal Household medal, third class, from the period 1903-1914 (better known as third model), produced by G.A Scheid from Vienna. As you can see, it's almost in mint condition...

What is interesting, there are on the ring few markings. Hallmark of the producer (GAS), two marks of the Assay Office (letter ,,A" in the square), and the third which is one large ------ (almost like numer 1 in horizontal position) without any meaning to me.

Anyone who can explain me the meaning of that third mark?

I would try to post picture with details.

A very nice find indeed, congrats on your newest acquisition :beer:
Maybe the third hallmark is badly imprinted silver fineness hallmark for small pieces - dog head and number 3 (.800)

And if i can contribute to the topic, this is an example of same medal manufactured by Arthus Berthrand. They were made from bronze and guilded, and the crown and letters are slightly different



And here we can compare and see difference between GA Scheid and Arthus Bertrand, golden ones with crown and without are manufactured by Arthus Bertrand and both silver medals are manufactured by GA Scheid
