Condition: Good Very Fine.

The order was founded by a Knyaz (Princely) Order dated 18 May 1900 ‘as a sign of particular recognition to our brave army’ and was an extension of the Order for Civil Merit to the military. (It is for this reason that the order bears the date of the founding of the latter order rather than its own). The order had six classes, the example here, the 5th class, was awarded to company and section commanders up to the rank of Captain, for non-commissioned officers, volunteers from the war of 1885 with Serbia and the Balkan Wars of 1912-13.
