Judging from the obverse, the oblong eye and the arrangment of stripes on the ribbon, it can be the Friedrich-Luisen-Medaille of Baden of 1906.

Hi Unfortunately I don't think it-s that

attached enhanced image, the profile is different

I personally feel more like Mecklenburg medals because they are close to the sea. The jaw in the photo is sharp

My answer is not necessarily correct, but I like this challenging topic (although it takes time):P

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.

I think there are 2 unknown medals - one unknown on each photo. They are not the same (just like the bar itself is quite different).
