PRUSSIAN – DRAGONER-REGIMENT NR 6 – VETERAN’S MEDAL COMMEMORATING FIFTY YEARS.
It is a veteran’s medal that commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of Dragoner-Regiment Nr 6’s establishment. The Prussian regiment was founded in 1860, and the medal was produced in 1910.
The medal is set up as a one-place medal bar. The medal is gilt-toned and measures 1 ½” in diameter. Its obverse features its regimental chef and patron’s crowned royal cypher contained within a wreath of laurel leaves. It also features the dates 1860-1910 and a “6.” The medal’s reverse displays an eagle with outspread wings, along with information about the regiment and regimental number.
The medal sports a small jump ring at its top that hooks onto a blue and black ribbon that is set up as a medal bar. A pin on the reverse allowed the medal to be attached to a uniform, or a civilian’s suit if the man no longer belonged to the regiment. It is a fine veteran’s piece that exhibits just a touch of wear to its ribbon.
