Default Identification Assistance-Medal & Pin

Hi Folks:

I recently ran into a possible purchase...and the owner sent me these pictures...which I can't ID

Verein Hamburg 214th Pin 1919

Medal with a torch bearer w/sword dated I think "1914" on Hindenburg Cross ribbon

Thank you for your help.

The enameled pin shows the coats of arms for Hamburg and Mecklenburg and is for a reunion in Hamburg for the Grossherzoglich-Mecklenburgischen Reserve-Infanterie-Regiments Nr. 214.

Can you show the reverse of the 2nd medal? It might be a cycling medal. But, whatever is written on the reverse could identify it.

The second one design I've seen on sports medals, but it could be also some chamber of trade or commerce. The ribbon is the wrong one, as far as I can see, the medal is just tossed over the ribbon.

Hi,

the second one is a "Spendenmedaille" (donation medal) for the "Christianenheim des Eisenbahn-Töchterhorts".

Three medals exist:
- a larger one with a box
- a medal as shown here
- the same medal with a needle on the back side

Please see here: https://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/ka...chterhort.html
"Es gibt diese Medaille als nichttragbare Medaille, mit rückseitiger Broschierung und mit Trageöse."

Uwe
