German WW1 Gallipoli Star for German Soldiers
You are bidding on a rare World War 1 Turkish Medal known as the Gallipoli Star. It is also known as the Turkish Iron Half Moon. Created in 1915 as an award of merit specific to the current war (World War I), this medal was not a campaign medal, but a medal for military merit. The War Medal was the "entry level" gallantry award of the Turkish military in World War I, ranking below the silver Liyakat Medal. This medal is often referred to by nicknames, such as the "Gallipoli Star" in English, or the "Eiserner Halbmond" (Iron Crescent) in German. The medal is star shaped, approximately 56 mm. across, with ball finials, a raised silver edge and red field in lacquer or enamel. A raised crescent, open at the top, encircles the center of the badge, and inside the crescent is the tughra of Sultan Mehmed Reshad V, over the date "1333" (1915).  It is in a very good condition. It is a very rare find in this condition. This is not a forgery or reproduction, this belonged to the Grandfather of a friend of mine who died just recently. I believe in its authenticity and if for any reason you doubt this I will refund your full purchase price (minus shipping and upon return of the item). 5.7 CM BY 5.7 CM IN SIZE.
Recently the same star on eBay was sold for $480 - please look at the last image.
Estimate price for this item is $250 - $270.
