    Default 100th Anniversary Medal for the Iron Cross 1813-1913

    Hello,

    I recently acquired this nice little gold color medal.

    It's apparently commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the institution of the Iron Cross.

    Unfortunately there was no ribbon with it.

    Has anyone seen one of these before?

    Best Regards,

    Alan

    Here is a different award but same dates and with an EK on the reverse. It is being sold as a 100 year Napoleonic War Campaign medal.

    Default Correction on 1813-1913 Commemorative Medal

    Hello,

    I stand corrected on what the medal is for. It's not for the institution of the Iron Cross in 1813. I should have been more careful and checked the dates.

    It probably commemorates the Völkerschlacht [Battle of the Nations] at Leipzig rather than the institution of the Iron Cross:

    The battle took place on 18/19 October 1813; the Iron Cross was instituted on 10 March 1813. Thanks to Andreas from Germany on WAF for the correction!

    Best Regards,

    Alan
