    Default Need help identifying uniform, medal, and helmet from austria circa 1880

    I am trying to identify my 2nd great grandfather uniform. The following picture was taken around 1880 from austria. Looking at the medal on his right chest under magnification, it appears to be a large letter "A" with some raised circles around it. Does it appear to be a cavalry uniform?? His name was Emerich Albrecht, born around 1860 and came to the U.S. in the early 1880's. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The helmet is for Austrian Dragoons; the tunic appears to be an undress version.
