    When I opened the back of the mounting of the frame...I was "thinking"...maybe there's a name or a document showing/listing the veteran but...nothing.

    I wonder about the 214th Inf loop/badge/etc...how was that worn...?

    Hi Folks: I picked up group that contained the medal and I opened up the back and found that the medal is what Ron & Uwe posted. I moved the Hindenburg Cross to the correct ribbon and the EKII 1914 to the correct ribbon and found the medal to be like the one Ron posted. W/o ribbon....the 214the Verein Hamburg pin actually has a loop on the back. I will take some pictures of the group and post some close-ups too..for info purposes

    Hi,

    nearly all these medals came without a ribbon. Therefore I think, that there was no original ribbon. And everybody could choose a ribbon he want to use.
    My medal had this ribbon.

    Wow Uwe.......Thank you for the information. I have never seen this. Based upon your site I was able to ID a few other medals and badges.

    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

    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.
