Description

Scarce French Bravery Award Issued By The French Minister Of The Interior For Bravery. Silver Grade First Class.

This very attractive full size silver medal measures 1 inch in diameter (26mm) and is in extremely fine condition.
It is complete with ribbon.

It was issued at the begining of the third French republic which commenced in 1870.

Obverse - Central legend "Republique Francaise" within a wreath of oak.
Reverse - Male and female figures holding wreath above central oval containing the legend "Ministere De L'Interieur. Actes Of Devouement . Charles D.Varangot 1870 - 1871".
Rim - Impressed with an official mintmark and the word "Argent" (Silver).

Award Criteria - Any person who risks his or her life to come to the rescue of one or many persons in danger, may be recognized with the medal.

I have not researched this particular medal but judging by the dates that it was issued (1870/71) I would think it was for some act of bravery during the Franco/Prussian War of the same years.
This type of the award is quite scarce and would make a great addition to any collection.

Mailing cost from France by standard airmail will be 2.50p
