Product Information
Specification
FRANCE: Medal for military merit "Valor and 
Discipline 1870" (or simply "Military Medal" in 
French). 
Marked "BRONZE" on the ring.
This is a WW2 era variation of the medal, a
transitional type that was used before the 
introduction of the official 8th type of the 4th 
Republic. This type is based on the version 
that was issued during the period of 1880- 
1910 (the 6th Version), with the coat of arms 
being attached on the medallion with loop 
and ring (instead of a hinge used at the 
common WW1 5th type) and is rarely seen 
in the market.
The Military Medal was created by Emperor 
Louis Napoleon in 1852 to be awarded 
specifically to non-commissioned officers 
(NCOs) and soldiers for completion of 8 years 
of military service, for bravery in front of the 
enemy as well as for acts of courage and 
devotion to duty. 
The Military Medal ranks 3rd among the 
Decorations and Orders of the French Republic, 
being inferior only to the Order of the National 
Legion of Honor, and to the Order of the 
Liberation. 
There are 9 main versions and nearly 30 
variations of the medal.
