Gentlemen, I won this medal by chance during the Chinese New Year. I only know that he is Saxony, maybe it is the Saxon-Coburg-Godda Principality? Because I turned over the information I could find, there was only a medal similar to me on Emedal. So I want to ask everyone to help me see, this is the medal of the period, I have never seen him in the order bar. It is large and heavy. Is this privately cast? Please tell us what you think, thank you.

Dear friend, thank you very much for your help. So is this medal rare? Do you know the price?

These early merit medals of the Ernestine Order are pretty scarce (probably just a few dozen awarded for many of them).  However, the collector demand isn't that strong.  The current OEK has it at 530 Euros.

Correct, that is a scarce one, and it appears to be an award piece with the Stempelschneider's name.

Dear Sir, I also saw this auction today, which has medals I like. I also saw this book, but he only sent Germany. I have found that sellers in Germany and Austria often only send their own country, and although I like them the most, their service attitude often makes me sad. On the contrary, Slovenia, Croatia, the Czech Republic, the former Austrian-Hungarian constituent countries have a much better service attitude, and there are very few cases where there is no reply to the mail.:)
