A 1812 Napoleon Bonaparte's Entry into Moscow Medal

A 1812 Napoleon Bonaparte's Entry into Moscow Medal - (1969 Restrike) Bronze, engraver marked "ANDRIEU F." at the base of the bust, cornucopia hallmarked, marked "BR" (bronze) and dated "1969" on the edge, obverse illustrating the right-facing bust of Napoleon Bonaparte with a crown of laurel leaves, inscribed "NAPOLEON" at the left and "EMP. ET ROI." to the right, reverse illustrating the Moscow skyline, inscribed "ENTREE A MOSCOU" above and "XIV. SEPTEMBRE MDCCCXII" (September 14, 1812) below, 40.5 mm, green oxidation evident on both sides, extremely fine. Footnote: One week after winning a bloody victory over the Russian army at the Battle of Borodino, Napoleon Bonaparte's Grande Armée entered the city of Moscow, only to find the population evacuated and the Russian army retreated again. Moscow was the goal of the invasion, but the deserted city held no czarist officials to sue for peace and no great stores of food or supplies to reward the French soldiers for their long march. Then, just after midnight, fires broke out across the city, apparently set by Russian patriots, leaving Napoleon's massive army with no means to survive the coming Russian winter.
