    Default My Great-Great-Grandfather's Russian Imperial Medal - What is it?

    Hello all,

    I'm not experienced in Imperial Russian medals and I need some help.

    I found a photo of my Great-Great-Grandfather, from the days of Grand Duchy of Finland (when Finland was still a part of the Russian Empire), where is wearing a Russian medal. Could it be possible to identify it, from the ribbon? He served in the Police Forces and I thought about the medal for Blameless Police Service, but I don't know the criteria for it be awarded. It's most likely a very common medal.

    What years was he in service? That would help narrow down some choices

    Hi Aleksander.
    Your Great-Great-Grandfather had russian medal "For Zeal" (За Усердие).
    It was a common award in Russian Imperia for the civil officials.
    Best regards, Alex.
