Royal Spanish Tribute Medal doubt

Recommended Posts

Dear collector, this is the first time I have posted a question in this area. I went through some old posts and found that the winner of the Maria Teresa medal also received the Royal Spanish Tribute Medal, which I think is very beautiful! Does anyone know what is the criteria for obtaining this medal?If anyone knows why this person got it, so much the better. Thank you

This is the "Medalla del Homenaje de los Ayuntamientos a SSMM"

https://coleccionesmilitares.com/medallas/texto/odm1931.htm

To commemorate the act of homage that Spain, through its Town Halls, made to the queen and to me [The King] on January 23 [1923], a Medal called tribute is created.
The Medal will be of bronze, of a single class and adjusted to the model coined by the National Mint , always being used with a pin and ribbon in national colors.
All the mayors, secretaries, councilors and deputies of the municipalities and deputations who sent commissions to Madrid or took part in the provincial festivals, the Somatenes who consider themselves adhered to the act, the officials or agents of authority that directly or indirectly took part in it, the chiefs, officers and troops that formed or were of some service on the days of the tribute and the citizens who in this way want to express their adherence, in a reliable way to the tribute.

In fact, I also thought that you could answer my question, and it came true! I would also like to ask you another question. Is there a difference between the versions of the Spanish naval military orders? Do you have a website or picture to recommend? Thank you

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
