Military Honour Medal, Type II, in Gold
Estimated market value:
The Military Honour Medal was conferred upon Westphalian military personnel who rendered service during the Napoleonic Campaigns.
The Gold Medals were awarded to Officers. Due to the high casualty rate, the Gold Medals are extremely rare and are almost never found in private collections.
The Type II medals were produced in an oval shape. The obverse of the medal features an armoured breastplate flanked by two cannons. Beside each cannon, there is a pile of six cannonballs. The reverse of the medal features the initials ‘HN’ surmounted by a crown. The initials and crown are surrounded by a laurel wreath.
