This is an original and very difficult to find leatherette case for the rare British military cross medal which were awarded for bravery. The exterior of the lid of the box features a gilt crown with gilt border. The interior of the box is manufactured in silk and velvet and it is inset for the award. Complete with military cross ribbon bar. This box would be correct for a WW1 or WW2 award. If you have the medal but missing the box this is probably a unique opportunity to complete it as these do not come available very often on there own. [Condition: Exc++]
