Kingdom of Serbia - Unusual 1912 Gold Bravery Medal


Recommended Posts

This piece was sold couple of weeks ago on ebay. I have never seen a medal like that before, back side looks just like the front side of the Silver Medal and the front side is also very different from the ones we usually see. Rare variant, prototype or something else?

To be honest real or fake I don't like. Same seller offered the regular medal at the same time, this one achieved much bigger price so who knows...
Rest of the pictures.

Hello Gentleman!

Nice topic Paja! :)

It is original Serbian gold bravery medal, "maiden" 1912 type 2! Very rare medal!!

There are three types of "maiden" medals; Type 1 with inscription 1912 under the maiden, type 1 without the inscription, and type 2 with Serbian coat of arms on the reverse instead of "for bravery"! Gold plated bronze 30mm!

My favorite Serbian bravery medals!! I must be some kind of feminist :D

Best regards

Joseph

nickstrenk, you have a beautiful collection of Serbian bravery medals, thanks for excellent photos!

Daffy Duck, that's a nice idea, putting all of them on one place would great. Unfortunately I can't contribute that much as I only have a few of them in my collection.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
