A Commander Jean Baptiste Kléber Commemorative Medal

A Commander Jean Baptiste Kléber Commemorative Medal - Bronze, engraver marked "DE PUYMAURIN. D." and "DUBOIS. F.", obverse illustrating the right-facing bust of Commander Jean Baptiste Kléber, surrounded by the inscription "J.B. KLEBERal EN CHEF DES ARMEES FRANses", reverse inscribed "MAESTRICHT. PASSAGE DU RHIN. HELIOPOLIS. L'EGYPTE RECONQsf" and "NE A STRASBOURG EN 1753 MORT EN 1800." inside an open ended wreath formed a branch of laurel leaves on the left and a branch of oak leaves on the right, 40.7 mm, oxidation spots on the obverse, extremely fine. Footnote: Jean Baptiste Kléber (March 9, 1753 - June 14, 1800) was a French general during the French Revolutionary Wars. His military career started in Habsburg service, but his plebeian ancestry hindered his opportunities. Eventually, he volunteered for the French Army in 1792, and rose through the ranks. Kléber served in the Rhineland during the War of the First Coalition, and also suppressed the Vendee Revolt. He retired to private life in the peaceful interim after the Treaty of Campo Formio, but returned to military service to accompany Napoleon in the Egyptian Campaign of 1798-1799. When Napoleon left Egypt to return to Paris, he appointed Kléber as commander of the French forces. He was assassinated by a student in Cairo in 1800.
