IDF 14th Armored ("Bison") Brigade Yom Kippur War commemorative medal, 1973; struck in bronze; no maker-mark; weight, 89.95g; size, 59mm: the obverse depicts a stylized tank blending into the number 14, with legend in Hebrew (quotation from the book of Tehilim, 127, 4) "As arrows in the hands of the mighty, thus the sons of youth are glorious"; on reverse a flag image and a similar image which may be a flame, with legend "Yom Kippur War" above.

The 14th Brigade was assigned to the western coast of the Sinai peninsula and so sustained the force of the Egyptian blow when they attacked by surprise; for the duration of the War the Brigade attempted to tem and reverse the Egyptian advance. In UNC, with lacquered surface whose loss in places gives the incorrect impression of wear.
