    Thank you !

    Some explanations :

    This medal has been created on 1915, 15th August by Wilhelm-Ernst of Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach (1901-1918).

    Awarded to womens who have served the State during the first Worl War.

    On the observe, we can see profiles of F?odora von Sachsen-Meiningen, wife of Grand-Duke Wilhelm-Ernst, and Maria Pavlowna Romanova, Grand-Duchess of Russia, and wife of Grand-Duke of Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach Friedrich-Karl (1828-1853). In exergue, it's written ? FEODORA MCMXV MARIA PAVLOWNA MDCCCXV GROSSHERZOGINNEN V. SACHSEN ? (? FEODORA 1915 MARIA PAVLOWNA 1815 GRANDS-DUCHESS OF SAXONY ?).

    On the backside, we can see entwined letters ? FWE ? (? FEODORA ? and ? WILHELM ERNST ?), surpassed by the crown of Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach. In exergue ? FRAUEN VERDIENST IM KRIEGE ? (? WOMENS MERIT IN WARTIME ?). The date of birth of the medal is also noted : ? XV AUGUST MCMXV ? (? 1915, AUGUST 15th ?).


    Best wishes (and I hope my english is not too bad...)
