For sale is a very nice and totally original Bavarian Order of Military Merit, IV Class with Swords, by Jacob Leser, c.1914 (Militärverdiestorden Kreuz 4. Klasse mit Schwertern).
This award was instituted on 19 July 1866 by King Ludwig II. This particular medal was made and awarded during the period 1914-1918 as indicated by the wide frame on the lower arm. The cross is marked “950” and “JL” for Jacob Leser of Straubing in NE Bavaria. The suspension ring is marked “900”.
There is a small but hard to see chip to the enamel on the rear right arm, otherwise it is in excellent condition with a pleasing patina.
Please look closely at the photographs which show the condition.
This is a genuine item from the Imperial era.
I always mail items by 1st class tracked and signed postage.
