G007672 KAISER WILHELM COMMEMORATIVE CENTENARY MEDAL. (Hundertjahrfeier Medaille) The 50mm diameter, bronze Centenary medal features, to its obverse, a right-facing, Pickelhaube-wearing, head-and-shoulders low-relief portrait of, as is indicated to the left, "Wilhelm der Grosse deutscher Kaiser" (Wilhelm the Great German Emperor), and, to the right, "Koenig von Preussen" (King of Prussia). To the reverse is a Hohenzollern crown, an orb, a sword, and a scepter, all upon a pillow with tassels to each of its corners, beneath and to the left of which arches a spray of laurel leaves, with a shorter spray of oak leaves arching upwards to the right. Above all of the aforementioned is "Zum Andenken an den Hundertsten Geburtstag des Grossen Kaisers Wilhelm I. 1797- 22. Maerz -1897" (In Memory of the Hundredth Birthday of-the Great Emperor Wilhelm I. 1797- 22.March-1897). Medal ring is complete. Comes with a section of original ribbon in a parade mount form. These medals were presumably made from cannons captured during the Franco-Prussian war.
