Estimated market value:
The Medal was established by Karl Theodor, Prince Elector, Count Palatine and Duke of Bavaria to recognize brave and extraordinary acts by members of the Bavarian Military. The medal was the highest possible award for Non-Commissioned personnel in the Bavarian Military. It could be awarded to entire companies, squadrons, commanders and volunteers. If individuals already possessed the Gold Military Merit Medal they were awarded a gift of money. Recipients of the medals were granted allowances; recipients of the gold medal received a whole month's salary and recipients of the silver medal received a half month's salary.
The Type IV medal was reissued on the occasion of the war in 1871 and again for World War I.
