Mystery Medal Identification

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Can any tell me what the last medal this Oberst is wearing please.  I thought it might have been the 1809-1909 Tiroler Jubilee Veterans Medal, but I pretty certain that is not that one.

Thanks, Ian

Could the medal mystery be the: Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an dies Silberne Hoch-Zeit des Herzogs Alfred 1909'?

Hi Ian 

certainly looks like one...

the ribbon as a trifold would correspond I believe.

And as foreign award it's placing would also seem correct to me.....

Farkas,

Many thanks for the reply. I am more convinced than ever that it is the said medal.

Regards,

Ian

Alfred Herzog von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha was the Regiment-Inhaber of Infantry Regiment 84 from 1894 until 1900.

So my mystery Oberst was probably serving in IR 84 in 1899 when the medal was issued.
