Ottoman-turkey-turkish 1869 Atik Girid Madalyasi – 1st Crete Combat Medal-silver

This is a scarce and rare Ottoman Turkish Empire Atik Girid silver medal or also known as the 1st Crete medal. Although uprisings among the Greek inhabitants of the island of Crete had been occurring for years, an outright revolt began on May 14, 1866, when a group of Greek citizens demanded lower taxes and changes in the court system. Although their demands were met, Ottoman troops were mobilized immediately, expecting outright rebellion. This became a self fulfilling prophecy, and fighting broke out between Cretan Greeks and Turkish soldiers. Thousands of Greek volunteers arrived on the island from the mainland, and the Greek government appealed to the Western powers to intervene on their behalf. Britain and Austria, however, were opposed to intervention for the time being. Thus, the Ottoman armies achieved one of their most uncompromised victories of the century, settling the affair in 1869. The Empire was able to retain Crete in some form for another 43 years. The medal is silver, 36 mm in diameter, with the tughra of Abdulaziz on the obverse above a crescent, and a panoramic view of the island of crete on the reverse below the word "Girid" (Crete). At the bottom of the reverse is the date 1285 (1869). The original ribbon color is believed to have been solid red. About 50,000 of these medals were awarded. Scarce militaria / military collector piece and one of the rare Ottoman Turkish medals.
