Product Information
Specification
Imperial Russia: St George’s Cross III Class. Numbered 305604.
Marked БМ (for “White metal”).
The Cross was founded by Tsar Alexander I in 1807 in a single class 
and was awarded to NCOs and soldiers for bravery in the field. 
Tsar Alexander II amended the Cross, in 1856, to a 4 classes award.  
A person would initially receive the 4th class and would subsequently 
be promoted to higher classes for further acts of bravery.
The 3rd Class of the Cross was initially struck in 0.99 silver, however 
since 1916 the crosses were made in “white metal”, like this example. 
A total of 289.000 Crosses of 3rd class were awarded during the WW1, 
but only 49,500 in white metal (№ 289.151 to № 338.650).
The Cross was abolished in 1917 following the Bolshevik Revolution.
The Cross is very rare.
