War Veterans' Decoration

Estimated market value:
The Decoration was founded by Grand Duke Ludwig III and was conferred upon the soldiers who participated in the military campaign that occurred during the reign of Grand Duke Ludwig I. It was primarily conferred upon veterans who fought in the Wars of Liberation against Napoleon, which occurred more than 50 years prior to the Medal’s institution.
Due to the small number of surviving veterans at the time, the Decoration was seldom awarded and as such, it is quite rare.
