Military Merit Medal in Bronze
Estimated market value:
A circular medal constructed of bronze. The obverse bears the bust of Duke Carl II encompassed by the inscription "CARL HERZOG ZU BRAUNSCHWEIG". The reverse bears the inscription "FÜR MILITÄR VERDIENSTE 1815" (for military merit) encompassed by a wreath of laurel and oak. On a loop for suspension, on a light blue ribbon with white stripes.
The Military Merit Medal was likely instituted in 1827 by Duke Carl II of Brunswick. However, some sources claim that the medal was established earlier in the 1820s. The Military Merit Medal was conferred upon individuals who demonstrated military merit in 1815, the last year of the Napoleonic Wars. The Military Merit Medal was conferred in Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The Bronze Medal may have been an unofficial grade of the Military Merit Medal, 1815.
