And that was with the stumps of 4 fingers worn away typing award rolls... :catjava:

Exceptionally nice looking medal, but the narrow width of the half and half ribbon still inclines me to some sort of veterans award-- perhaps a specific regiment's jubilee medal? Nicer than the usual generic things hanging from weird pentagonal ribbons.

1897+ is also late for one of those niftiest of all trapezoid medal bar mounts. They seem to have peaked in the 1880s. Very hard to find.

I got this little CDV recently.

Taken in 1900 in Coburg, is it possible that the last medal is a Saxe- Coburg long service medal?

Help? What is that third medal?


it could be from the saxon 'association of honorably discharged military'

Are you sure? The ribbon looks different and from the details I see (maybe you can see better details having it "in-hand"), the medal is not the same. I could be wrong!

The same to Rick, regarding my photo...

It looks rather like Oldenburg's medal for 1848/49. But again, the ribbon does not seem to match. Possible?
