I saw this tucked away in an antique store.  Appears to be wearing a buttonhole ribbon for the Bavarian Bravery medal.

Hard to say if it is a bavarian bravery medal. Do you have a name on the back?

I am not sure, but i mean, there´s a book with pics of the recipients (i do not have it)

Hello!

Can you recognize the buttons? Lion or crown? Are you sure he is bavarian?

The bavrian bravery medal could be received by bavarians. So he would have worn that medal above the Iron Cross.

If it is the bavarian bravery medal, shouldn´t he have another bavarian medal?

I assume it´s a medal from another german state, which was worn with the Iron Cross.

Maybe the military merit medal from Lippe-Detmold?

Here we´ve got an Unteroffizier of Foot-artillery-bataillon 124

Please have a look:

Thanks for the replies.  This is the only photo I have and the buttons are out of focus as it the belt buckle.
