Very rare suspended medal, approx. 1 3/4" square, with a 2 1/2" ribbon, awarded during the Franco-Prussian war. The face of the medal bears that date "1870" beneath the letter "W", while the reverse bears the date "1813" beneath three oak leaves and the letters "FW". The ribbon bears the "Weiderholungsspange", an enameled miniature of the 1914 Iron Cross on a bar, awarded to recognize noteworthy actions during World War I by recipients of the Iron Cross during the Franco-Prussian war. It is marked on the reverse "Joh. Wagner & Sohn." with a half moon and a crown hallmark before "800 Berlin. W." The "Jubilaumsspange", in the form of an oak cluster with the numeral "25", was awarded during the 25th anniversary of the Franco-Prussian war. Minor wear, else very good.
