  1. This is 3rd class cross

    In 1880 there were three degrees of the cross - two gold and one degree of the silver cross. 
    In 1885, the Prince added a fourth-degree cross and all veterans who received a cross in 1880 added a bow to the ribbon of the cross. 

    Russian medal in silver was presented to all veterans who fought on Shipka.
