Two Saxon memorial medals dedicated to the campaign of 1700


Polish-Saxon memorial medal of taking Cobron
Grzegorz Szymborski found two interesting Polish-Saxon memorial medals related to the campaign of 1700. One is dedicated to the taking of Kobron fort by Saxon forces on 25 Feb. 1700. The entrenchment was situated on the right bank of Dune river opposing Riga. It was was held by a small Swedish garrison of 50 men under captain Bildstein & easily capitulated to outnumbered Saxon forces after 2-days defense. The second medal is dedicated to the taking of Dunamunde on 23 March 1700, see details here (link)
