Never have been much of a medal collector, but that is changing since a couple of years.
The LH never was on list, for some reason, but the second empire (used from 1852 to 1871) one is something else to me.
It bears the profile of Bonaparte and the first empire eagle.
Totaly different from the one in use now....
The one I got has some dammage, but I like it never the less.
I posted it twice because I can't get rid of the shadow when taking the pic of the reverse on the right side...
