    I saw this on another site, it is claimed to be a veterans badge or medal, but it has the date 1788 on it, which doesn't mean anything to me in regards to the Kyffhässer organisation. I've never seen a veterans medal like this, has anyone else? It has a pin on the rear.

    the date might just be the date these medals were first issued, as in when the order first began. I believe the same goes for the world war 1 iron crosses, which have the year "1813" on the back, but other than that, I am no specialist in medals, nor in most of these related topics here. Good luck

    The trouble with that is that the Kyffhäuserbund wasn't started till 1900, and the Kyffhäusser monument wasn't built till 1896. The year 1788 pre-dates Napoleon and the 1813 EK's, so apart from the arrival of the First Fleet in Sydney, I can't work out what the 1788 alludes to in respect of veterans associations.
