    Default Need help on old German medal

    I know this medal is pre WW1 but was not sure were else to post it for help.
    This came from a friend of mine that used to metal detect at old burned down farmsteads around Iowa here.
    He gave it to me back in 1996 all I did was wipe off the soot and dirt.
    The only thing I can tell is Jager which I know means hunter.
    Anyone have any ideas what it is/for?
    Or where I could look on the internet?
    Thanks in advance.

    Awesome THANKS.
    Any ideas on the age? I was thinking 1870-1890's?

    I agree, 1870-1890 is the correct time-period...
    cheers, Glenn
