    Default Imperial Miniaturen - help please!

    Just in today, my latest Miniaturen. I can ID the first two easy enough, but the third has me stumped. It is referring to a 50th anniversary 1822-1872, and has Saxon ribbon, the only thing I could find was on JK Militaria, unfortunately I couldn't get a link. Their description is:

    Commemorative medal of Prussian-Saxon Union. Medal issued on 50th anniversary. Saxony was one of the biggest and strongest of German States and Prussia had to keep good relations with the Kingdom. Oval medal in bronze, traces of gilt. Old, watermarked silk ribbon. Obverse of the rulers with inscription to edge: 'Zur Erinnerung, 1829 11.Juni 1879'. Reverse of coats of arms with scrolls below, Imperial crown upon a winged cherub to top.

    Mine has inscriptions on both sides, both of which differ slightly to the one inscription on the JKM medal. Does anyone have any clues as to what my Miniatur is please?

    Troy: The initial date, 11 June 1829 is the day that Wilhelm I married Princess Augusta von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach. So, my guess is that the medal is celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and everyone serving in the Prussian Army, received the commemorative medal. Dwight
