Circular silver medal with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the head of King Wilhelm II facing right, circumscribed ‘WILHELM II KOENIG VON WUERTTEMBERG, signed ‘K SCHWENZER’ (for Karl Schwenzer of Stuttgart); the reverse inscribed ‘FÜR LANGJÄHRIGE TREUE DIENST’ (For long and faithful service), circumscribed ‘KOENIG-KARL-JUBILAEUMS-STIFTUNG’ (King Karl’s Jubilee Foundation) above a wreath of oak; on original ribbon mounted for wear, with bronze rectangular buckle, an oval escutcheon centrally with the crowned cipher of King Wilhelm II. The Jubilee Foundation was created in 1891 on the occasion of the silver jubilee of King Karl with an endowment of 528,000 marks under the management of the Interior Ministry to improve the welfare of the rural needy and to support new small businesses and home industries. Two years later, in 1893, the medal was instituted to recognise long and faithful service in such enterprises. It is quite rare. A very good example.

Gentlemen,

What can you tell me about this award?  The text and pictures above, of the first type medal, is from a web site selling this particular medal.  I am dealing with another chap for the second issue of this medal that is different in numerous aspects.  Different suspension, reverse etc.  The second issue was apparently awarded from 1922 until 1934?  Before I complete the deal for the cased second issue I'd like to gather some more accurate information on this award.  Thanks in advance for your participation.

Regards,

Gordon

This is the shop of my best friend. Obviously, he only sells five hundred yuan. I seem to be the seller of Albania from the picture quality of your picture. What can I help you with? In addition, there are indeed different loops, and I also have deep questions about this, such as:

This is the 50th anniversary of the reign of Friedrich I of Baden-Württemberg in 1902. In my opinion, there are also different links. Here, I also ask the gentlemen who know this reason?:beer:

I have found the answer to my questions on ehrenzeichen-orden.de and I'l  post an online translation of what this site says about each medal.

Medal of the King Karl Jubilee Foundation Freistaat Württemberg

 
 

This medal was donated on 2 November 1920 by the State Ministry of the Free State of Württemberg. After World War I and the formation of the Free State, the Constitution of the Foundation was changed. The purpose of the foundation remained basically the same. In addition to supporting and promoting agriculture, home industry and small businesses, a medal should continue to be given in a modified form. Workers and employees should be awarded after many years of loyal work in the same company. Workers in commercial enterprises could be awarded after 35 years and agricultural workers after 25 years of service. Civil servants and employees in private companies were excluded. Foreigners could also be awarded. The proposed maximum of 6 medals per year was obviously not respected. The medals were made of silver or silver-plated white metal. The size of the clasp also varies slightly.

Round medal made of silver with raised edge. Above a soldered, ordinary eyelet with band ring. On the band a rectangular, hollow embossed bronze clasp. Behind a wide soldered metal strip for pulling the tape. On the metal strip a horizontal pin.
