Hi all,

Something nice for Hanseatic collectors!:cheers:

Just arrived my new adition for my collection - Hanseatic League Napoleonic Wars Military medal, 1813-1814 in silver (Gemeinsame Kriegsdenkmünze für die Hanseatische Legion 1815)

Like I understand, made by Gottfried Bernhard Loos (1774-1843) in Berlin for Hanseatic Legion battalions. www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de states that only 800 silver awarded and 12 golden ones.

Someone, who have same award(s) or know well this period items, maybe can have a look at the pictures below and advise regarding originality. To me details looks very good and sharpe.

35,92mm wide

1,62mm thick

weight 14,9

(these figures can be varie a little).

As some here may know, I am a Hanseatic collector and I must say Timo that this is a beautiful piece!! :love: My congratulations on obtaining it.

Do you know if that is the original ribbon?

Best wishes

Thanks Christophe and Matt! Ribbon is unfortunately modern replacement and I am actually considering to display it without it (or if I can find period Lübeck Hanseatic Cross ribbon for that, what looks exact same).
