Nicholas II Medal for Zeal, 1894-1915.
In silver; measures 30.2 mm wide, weighs 16.1 g including the ribbon. This variation of the Nicholas II Medal for Zeal was issued only between 1894 and 1915, until the introduction of the smaller, 28 mm version.
In excellent condition. The raised details of the bas-relief portrait, florals and lettering on both sides are exceptionally well-preserved and crisp. There are some tiny dings to the raised edge, but no nicks or significant bumps. There is very attractive even patina to silver throughout. The medal comes with a new St. Stanislaus ribbon in silk moiré mounted on a Soviet-era suspension.
