Today we offer the Tapferkeits-Medaille (Bravery Medal) from Hesse-Darmstadt’s Grand Duchy. It measures 1 5/16″ in diameter. The decoration was awarded from 1894-1918. Its obverse shows a profile of Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig. Its reverse bears “Für Tapferkeit” within a wreath. It is a prewar example made of silver. When awarded during the war years, it generally was awarded noting the years of service. It comes with an original red and gray ribbon, and housed in its original cardboard packet. The packet measures 2 1/4″ x 2 3/4,” and sports the decoration’s name printed on its exterior. On its inside flap it has the hallmark for Darmstadt jeweler “Ernst Marholdt.”
