    I have always had a fascination with the Order of the Medjidie since it was awarded to British Officers for service in the Crimean War. OMSA Medal Notes No. 9 entitled (edited by Jeffrey Floyd) lists all the British Officers who received all five classes of the Order.

    So when an opportunity came to snap a picture of this unusual 3rd Class neck badge I could not resist. What made this badge so unusual is that it is made by the London firm of Hunt and Roskell (late Storr and Mortimer), probably for a British Officer who perhaps desired to have a bit higher quality badge. You can see the firm’s name engraved on the back of the neck badge. Examples are known from Paris jewelers as well.

    I would be interested in seeing or hearing about other Crimean era Medjidie examples from others on the forum.

    Best Regards,
    Chris

    Hello Avsar,

    Very nice set! Is it attributed? Is this from the Ottoman Mint? Thanks for sharing it.

    Best regards,
    Chris

    Hi Chris and Avsar,

    Here is my Crimean era 5th Class Order of Medjidie, unmarked.

    I’m still comparatively new to collecting these beautiful Orders but am enjoying the variations between different periods.

    This isn’t Crimean era, but an example of how beautiful these Orders are.

    Thanks to Avsar for the medal. The case I managed to pick up from Chelsea Militaria in London.

    Demir,

    You can purchase a copy of this from OMSA. Click on "Publications" at the top of this page. You should be able to navigate to the Books section from there. The Medal Notes are at the bottom of the page.
