This medal came in a small group from a family in Tbilisi. The group itself consists of a 5 Nov. 1914 wedding platter to a military doctor and his Sisters of Mercy bride, from the doctors, officers and Sisters of Mercy of the 106th Field Reserve Hospital, her Sisters of Mercy jeton, a small early Soviet Ready for Sanitary Defense rhomb ... and this odd medal.

The central figure on the medal is very reminiscent of France's Lady Liberty. I can read on the obverse "Long Life", "Russian Democratic Republic" and "Free Russia". On the left seems to be a laborer, in the typical glorified Soviet style. On the right are the symbols -- cross, anchor and heart -- that I associate with the Imperial Russian Society for Faith, Hope and Love (or something like that) that treated wounded veterans.

My references are not as good as they should be and I can't find anything like this medal anywhere. Can anyone help me? I know this isn't exactly a Soviet medal, but I don't think "Free Russia" can be associated with Imperial Russia either. I know that the Russian Democratic Republic is what Lenin called the nation before it became the USSR, right? But this isn't one of the few very early medals that I have read about. Maybe it is a society medal rather than a government medal?

Thanks for any help you can give.
