ARTIFACT: This is an Exquisite World War I Turkish Gallipoli Star 1915 Campaign German Made in Unmarked Silver by Godet Berlin.

The Gallipolli Star is a military decoration awarded by the Ottoman Empire. It was known as the Ottoman War Medal (Turkish: Harp Madalyası) or the Iron Crescent (from German Eiserner Halbmond, in allusion to the Iron Cross). It was instituted by Sultan Mehmed V on 1 March 1915 for gallantry in battle. This decoration was awarded for the duration of World War I to Ottoman and other Central Powers troops, primarily in Ottoman areas of engagement.

The medal, made of enameled silver, has a vaulted star-shaped badge. The tips of the star are capped by ball finials and enclosed in a raised silver edge with the field in red enamel. A raised crescent, open at the top, encircles the center of the badge. Inside the crescent is the Tughra or cipher of the decoration's creator, Sultan Mehmed V Resad, over the date 1333 AH (AD 1915).

VINTAGE: World War I.

SIZE: Approximately 2-1/4" in height x 2-1/4" in width.
