Was there a medal or badge awarded with this Brevet and if so, what did it look like?

I don't think there was any medal or badge awarded with it. But it's a very interesting document.

Hallo Gentlemen, :D

I just read your very interesting post with regards the Mountain Hunters, while not strictly related to this post, can either of you identify this item I have in my collection, I believe its Mountain hunter / troop related.

25 October 1921 is the date of birth of Prince (later King) Mihai. That would explain the crown and the letter M on the obverse. The reverse is inscribed "NAŞI", which is the Romanian for GODFATHERS, so the piece could be related to the baptism of Mihai. I do not know however whether the mountain troops were his honorific godfathers or some individuals were chosen to act as his godfathers and then received the badge. Anyhow, it is quite interesting.
