About this item
Direct from Paris a rare original 1870 FRENCH MEDAILLE MILITAIRE GALLANTRY MEDAL IN PRESENTATION BOX, nice early piece from around the early 1900's made from solid fine Silver richly 18 Carat Gold plated.
The creator of the médaille was the emperor NAPOLEON III. The Military Medal is issued to any non-commissioned officer or enlisted personnel who distinguishes himself by acts of bravery in action against an enemy force. Commissioned officers are not eligible. An interesting feature of the médaille is that it's also the supreme award for leadership, being awarded to Generals and Admirals who had been commanders-in-chief.
