    Austro-Hungarian Franz J. II. Bravery Medal in Bronze

    Hello,

    What do you think about this piece? Seems to me a post war made example, can it be St&L? The medal is far thicker than the usual Austrian made wartime examples.

    Thanks for your help.

    Nice piece, and again an interesting one!!
    I would also say, a later example......
    Could be S&L, but again it doesn't shout to me as a typical S&L piece, the toned Bronze finish is nice, but I don't recall it on other S&L medals, then again, it doesn't seem typical for Deumer either, but I would imagine it is one of those two makers??
    Hopefully Alex might be able to help with some info on maker, as Imperial replacement pieces is very much his area of expertise!!!!

      Interesting medal indeed. Just like Nigel I‘m leaning towards a later produced medal. It was produced postwar by St&L as well as Deumer. Hard to tell which one yours is, without carefully studying the details.
      The first picture shows the S&L version. The second one shows the Deumer made medal.
      Regards,

        Thanks for those pics Alex...very helpful!!!
        Though its difficult to be sure, looking at the angle of his collar, the gap between the top of the head and the lettering, and the style of lettering itself, I am thinking S&L???

          Yes Nigel, I believe you correctly identified this one as a St&L medal. The details you mentioned above are a match for the St&L variant.
          Best regards,
          Alex
