Medaille militaire

Recommended Posts

Now I did it.  I stuck my toe into French medals.  I saw this sitting in a case of costume jewelry marked "French Broach."  I felt sorry that it was in such poor company and brought it home.  I will say I got it very cheaply.  My question is,"How can you tell what period it is from?"

Thanks Paul.  Other than the law of averages, being that more were probably awarded during WW1 than at any other time, how can you tell?

Hi,

The 1870 date on the obverse and the hinge suspension points to the medal being awarded in the 1910-1950 era ...

Regards,

Hendrik

Single sided swivel suspension but not too awful quality.
