  1. Yes, it is likely that the Austrian manufacturer imposed on the king or the relevant official ribbons having on stock. And the king wanted ribbons different from his predecessors. But there were probably no economic reasons, because the number of employees eligible for the award was not large. The number of medals ordered probably did not exceed 500, so the savings on cheaper ribbons would be insignificant.

  2. I am sorry, Germany is not in my interest, but I need to decipher the abbreviations of the decorations in the appendix. I understand the last abbreviation should be  Austrian Order of the Iron Crown 3rd Class. Maybe there is a list of abbreviations somewhere on this forum, but that's the amount of information that's hard to find something. Thanks for the help.
