Old 14k Gold & Enamel Medal; ~ludovicus Ii Magn. Dux Hassiae Instit.~ For Sale
Old and rare 14K yellow gold and enamel medal in the shape of a cross, with the motto of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, a union lasting from 1569-1795.
One side has "Deus Nobiscum Quis Contra Nos" (If God be for us, who can be against us?)around an applied gold portrait. The reverse side reads "Ludovicus II Magn. Dux Hassiae Instit" around a crowned lion holding a sword.
The gold work and enameling is superb, every detail is crisp.
The medal measures approx. 1.5" square, the top ring is approx. .5" long. Weight is 10.2 grams.
This may be a commemorative medal, just not sure what it's purpose was, or actual age. It may be original, hard to know. Just who is Ludovicus II? Information appreciated.
There are no marks that can be seen; the gold tested at 14K.
Offered 'as found' in excellent estate condition, a few very light scratches on the white enamel, some light dirt in the crevices.
