Unknown Croatian Medal - dtd 1888

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Can someone please help me identify this medal?  I suspect that it’s from Croatia and that it commemorates an anniversary, wedding or state visit by a king & queen or some other royalty.  

Thanks!

John

Bayern,

That is interesting.  Maybe it was a given that people would know who the crown prince and princess were by their effigies? Sorry about Argentina's loss to Mali in the U20 World Cup yesterday...it was a good match.
