    Hello, I am not sure about the period of this particular medal, nor can I find any info on it. It looks similar in design a Schutztruppe star. It is enamelled in the centre. I cannot quite decipher the text on the back, something about faithful service?

    Please post your thoughts.

    It's an award for 7 years in the local brass band, not a military award.

    booboo252,
    I did not know what this medallion was until Redgemak pointed it out....on the subject of German (modern) marching bands, they seem on the whole to model their uniforms and accessories on a traditional military theme,one has to be remember this and be careful, especially on auction sites, when purchasing ''band'' items that are frequently sold as military. Some of their tunics/jackets are strikingly similar to the Imperial style Hussars ''Attilla'' jacket !
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
