  1. Hello jaeger7, I wish that I could provide some more answers on this medal and the members of the family Sixt von Armin to whom it may have presented; but I just don’t do not have any more information to go upon. Hopefully, some of our fellow members will be able to help. Best wishes, Wild Card
  2. Hello Jaeger7, Thank you for your inquiry. First, as you will see below, there is something that I should correct. In my original post where I said that the inscription reads “SIXT VON ARMIN…”, it should be “SIXT.v.ARMIN. …”. To your question, I would say that it is stamped, not engraved. I hope that this information and these pictures are helpful. Thank you again for your inquiry and interest. Best wishes, Wild Card
  3. Greetings David, I believe that this medal is an example of what you are looking for. It is inscribed on the rim - “SIXT VON ARMIN KÖN. PREUSS HAUPT. IM 2 WESTPH. INFANT. REC. N. 15” I hope that this is helpful. Best wishes, Wild Card

    Hello Otter76, That is a beautiful example that you have there. One minor point. I think that you may have the ribbon mounted backwards. It should be red on the left, white on the right. Check it out, I could be wrong. Best wishes, Wild Card
  7. Nice going Seeheld, congratulations! Wild Card
  8. Hi Beau, Good to hear from you. All that I have on him so far is that he is listed in the Hannover 1865 House and State Handbook as a premier lieutenant on the staff of the engineer corps. After 1866 he, like many other Hannoverians, continued his career in the Saxon army. My notes show that he served in the 2nd Co., Royal Saxon Pioneer Bn. I should probably point out that his Hannover jubilee medal is a 21 April 1804/ 21 April 1904. That’s about it. Best wishes. Wild Card
