AUSTRIAN FRANZ JOSEPH JUBILEE CROSS 1908
Ribbon needs flattening after long term storage. Some light wear to patina
The Jubilee Cross (German: "Jubiläums-Kreuz 1908") was an Austrian-Hungarian award and was set up in 1908 by Emperor Franz Joseph who celebrated in that year that it had been 60 years since he ascended the throne. The design was by court medal maker professor Rudolf Marschall (1873-1967). On the front the cross had a circular medallion with a portrait of the Emperor in his uniform as a field marshal, the text "FRANC. IOS. I." and the signature "R. Marschall". The medals were awarded from at least the period from 1908 until the death of the Emperor in 1916 - and probably till the end of 1918 with retroactive effect for services
