Hi Chaps, I couldn't find the old Austro Hungarian medals thread to add this to; but here's my latest. As you can see it's a Small Silver Bravery Medal with 2 Bars "Tapferkeits Medaille" . Apparently it's the equivalent of being awarded the EK1 3 times. There were 384,000 issued during the war. This compares to 280,000 EK1's being issued. This is the first type bearing, on the obverse, the bust of Emperor Franz Joseph I with the text "FRANZ JOSEPH I V.G.G. KAISER V. OESTERREICH" (Franz Joseph I, by the grace of God, Emperor of Austria) and on the reverse, within a laurel wreath with crossed flags at the bottom, the words "DER / TAPFERKEIT" (For Bravery, in German). The 2 silver bars are maker marked "ZIMBLER, WIEN VII". These medals are still very underated to my mind, Cheers, Richard.
