Hi all, I’m just needing a little assistance in IDing a few of his medals, thanks



Does anyone have a photo of the "Medaille zum 50. Regierungsjubilaum 1903" by any chance, not familiar with that one?

With all respect, but I will insist on Baden - for at least two reasons:

1. the eyelet - typical of Baden's medals. Can you think of any other German-speaking country's medals with the eyelets like that?

2. the ribbon - I will insist that the edges are white, not yellow like in those Anhalt or Mecklenburg medals shown above. Yellow used to come out quite dark on old photos - just have a look at the prince's Militärverdienstkreuz of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Its ribbon should have yellow and red edges and the yellow look even darker than the red. The sequence of colours on the ribbon of our researched medal (dark with dark side-stripes and white edges) matches the ribbon of the Friedrich-Luisen-Medaille.
