1914-15 Bronze Metals

I aquired these metals in a collection of coins I bought about 5 years ago. Since I have tried talking to some Russian freinds I had, other metal collection sites and various coins sites. None have been able to indentify them.

Hopefully someone here can indentify some of them. Here are the pictures of what I have. Thanks for any help you people could give to me on them.

I can add the reverses of the metals if need be. Thnaks again for any information or help helping me find out what these are and information on them.

I don't know what you have, but they are probably not Russian.

The middle image seems to reference Serbia and the far right, I believe is either written in or references Poland.

Re: 1914-15 Bronze Metals

Yes, rear images might help. Especially if there is more writing on that side. Perhaps pop 'em out of the sleeves so we get less reflection? That might help as well making out letters and themes.

Just a wild guess would be WW1 patriotic items. I know the Germans started right in 1914 minting patriotic things.

Re: 1914-15 Bronze Metals

Thanks for the quick replies. Here are the shots of the reverse sides. I will take them out of the flips and get better shot tomorrow of them. I have a new camera now and it does a really nice jobs on my coins. Hopefully these new images and the ones tomorrow will help.

Thanks again

The third one says something like "Russians to brother Poles" and is mentioned in this Russian forum

Re: 1914-15 Bronze Metals

Thanks Simon for the information. I was told by a Russian freind back in Oregon that these may be metals presented to fellow soldiers from other countries for helping fight with them. Other then that, thats all I have found out about them.

I seem to get on this search for information on them every so many months. After five years I have put in a lot of time searching for their information. Getting a little closer now thanks to your help.

Re: 1914-15 Bronze Metals

I think these are all of Serbian manufacture and inscriptions, mentioning their Russian and Polish "fraternal" assistance.
