Turkey, Ottoman Empire. A Medal of Iftihar, Gold Grade, c.1855

(Iftihar Madallyasi). Medal of Glory. Instituted in 1839. Type III (1853 Issue). In silver gilt, measuring 31.5 mm in diameter, scattered gilt wear, edge nicks, contact marks, replacement ring, on incorrect ribbon, very fine.

Footnote: The Medal of Iftihar (AKA Medal of Glory), Type III was instituted in 1853 and awarded for participation in the Danube Campaign early in the Crimean War with Russia and, later, for other campaigns where no specific campaign medal was struck. The medal is therefore sometimes referred to as the General Service Medal or Danube Medal.
