    Default Need help identifying a medal!

    I picked up a nice cabinet photo a while ago. Being Croatian, I liked that it was taken in Zagreb. There were a couple other Croatian ones I got as well.
    The first medal is the Order of the Iron Crown.
    Second is the Jubilee Medal.
    What is the third?!
    It looks like maybe a Military Merit cross? But this medal does not appear to have the "circle" that goes around the cross. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hvala! I think that it is. Do you know the name of that medal?

    The one in the link is the Austrian officers 25 year military service medal 1st type but I think the one in your picture has a dark outline which makes it look to me like the 3rd type although it is very difficult to interpret the ribbon colour which might have some bearing.

    As for the medal itself I believe that rather surprisingly the later 3rd type is the more scarce.

    I hope this helps

    Regards

    No worries, I actually wrote that at the same time you posted!

    Well, I think I am going to let a $10 photo have me buy $1000 in medals. I want to get it all put together and in a very nice display case. Croatian related items of the Austrian Hungarian period are a very exciting field for me.

    On second thought, the second medal looks more like a 40 year service to me. And I think it makes more sense in the order of precedence. Thoughts?
