Wild Card, a beautiful miniature, respect!

Perhaps you'll be able to help me a little with your knowledge about these early miniatures. I recently got this one, I assume it's from Hessen, but I cannot find out exactly what it is, and from which part of Hessen - apart from the obvious text; .... Leipzig 1813. Any info on this one?

Regards, Lars

Nice catch Lars! Is the mini silver or gilded, difficult to tell from the image. Here are a few more of the same type, the non-portable medal is Crownprince Karl (Karl XIV 1818). I also found one mini in my files dedicated specifically for him.

Uwe and Peter, thank you for your comments, and sorry for this late reply.

Uwe, after having spent some time on the net I understand that these "Siegespfennig" would be private purchases to commemorate a certain event, and should not be confused with miniature medals although they have the size and appereance as such, is this correct. Or would they be worn together with other miniature decorations?

Lars

This just arrived from Oz.  It appears to be a variation of the Lifesaving Medal awarded by the Bavarian Free State from 1931-1934 (more of a Weimar piece than Imperial, I know) although, the design is a bit different than the photo in Nimmergut.  It is well struck and appears to be silver.  The ribbon is correct for that award.  Any thoughts?
