    Default Mini Maiden's cross

    On April 9, June 26 and July 29 1871 a total of 2992 "Merit Cross for Woman and young Woman" were
    awarded by Queen Agusta of Prussia to recognize the contributions made by woman and nurses for
    caring for the injured in the war of 1870.



    Fullsized crosses are hard to find and usually command a pretty fair price.

    myself around.

    That's a Beauty for sure, Greg...These are indeed scarce and hard to find in any size, miniature or full-size...

    Miniature versions of the Maiden's cross are near impossible to find.
    Probably given to the fact they had to be purchased by the reciepient
    plus the fact that they are so small, these were likely lost or thrown out
    with grandma's old jewelry, these are exceedingly rare.

    I was lucky enough to have this land at my door step today. I only wish
    that my scans could accurately show the quality of the solid silver and enamel
    details of this little 15mm cross.

    Thanks Glenn.
    The first picture is of my fullsized maiden's cross. The following two pictures are of
    my newly aquired mini.
