This is a consignment item. The Kaiser Wilhelm I Centennial Medal commemorated the 100th (1797-1897) anniversary of Kaiser Wilhelm I’s birth. It is an interesting variation of the award. To begin, these decorations were awarded with an urkunde (award document). While the decoration is in very good condition, what really sets it off is that the yellow ribbon (customary with this medal) is tied in a bow rather than its normal vertical style. This means that it was intended for a female, which is quite unusual. I am not sure I have ever seen another version like this.
