Austro Hungarian mark - star * - asterisk ?


Recommended Posts

Let us solve this mark on Austro Hungarian medals - star * so called asterisk.

What does this means?

I have heard that medals produced at the end of war were made from war materials (tombak) instead of silver/gold and those medals where marked with star but I don't know if this is a fact or just rumors.

I have seen mark star on medals like:

- Order of Franz Joseph I. Knight's cross of the Order (3rd class)

- Military Merit Cross 'Piis Meritis' (2nd class)

Attached file (star) on my Piis Meritis medal.
