Silver Merit Cross


Recommended Posts

This Silbernes Verdienstkreuz mit der Krone with the hallmark of Braun in Vienna is an extremely fine piece, whose quality is always excellent. Finding it in its correct, original case is also a rare plus.

I would like to anly add some further info: This exact piece, being struck with the silver marks introduced in 1867, can be dated around that period (although Braun worked earlier too!).

The very 1st type of the Verdienstkreuz, in my opinion, was made by Kittner (Vienna): its typical crown (in the pieces "mit der Krone") was small too, but somewhat "rounder" than Braun's one. Kittner marked pieces, never have any gold or silver marks.

Best wishes,

Enzo (E.L.)
