Austro - Hungarian Empire : Military Merit medal "Signum Laudis" with
double crown (Austrian Empire & Kingdom of Hungary), silver (1st)
With swords, for combatants, in its box of issue.
Issued by Kaiser Karl to officers, this medal replaced, in 1917, the
respective one of Kaiser Franz Joseph I.
The initial medal was established in 1886 in its bronze class while the
silver class was introduced in 1911, being ever since the highest merit
award of the Austrohungarian Empire.
This version of the medal (with Kaiser Karl's head) is quite rare as it
was awarded for just 2 years (1917 and 1918).
Late example, of the final stages of the Great War, in silvered bronze
(silver wes reserved for the war effort so late examples were made
initially in silvered bronze/brass and later on in silvered zinc).
