Hello

This is a French "Croix de Juillet", related to the 1830 revolution (3 days in late July 1830, leading to a Regime change --> Louis Philippe becoming King of the French, instead of the previous King of France)

Attributed slightly less than 2000 times I believe, so fairly rare.

Too bad it is missing the centers

Thank you for your reply JM. So the side with 'SS' has been added.

I bought these two together for £5 at the weekend. Part of the missing piece of the Croix de Juillet was stuck on the Légion d’honneur with blue tack. What a shame. I suspect someone has dug the centers out to cash the gold in. [If they were even gold].
