Deep blue enamel Maltese cross decussate with ball-tipped finials, with gilt rays between the arms, with loop and lateral bar suspension; the face with a circular central red enamel medallion inscribed ‘2º’ and circumscribed ‘1913 1914 PERIODO’ within a gilt border, an outer ring inscribed ‘MERITO – REVOLUCIONARIO’; the reverse plain; on original faded ribbon with laurel-decorated gilt top bar mounted for wear. The Cross was instituted by Presidential decree of 5 October 1939 to be awarded for outstanding merit in the revolutionary war against the government headed by Victoriano Huerta between 20 February 1913 and 15 August 1914 (Grove D-357). A spectacular example.
