This two-place medal bar features a Franco-Prussian War Combatants Medal on the left. It is one of the decoration’s issued examples. The “issued” badges were cast from melted down French cannons, a fact that is engraved on the decoration’s edge (a practice initiated during the 1813-1815 Napoleonic Wars). On the medal bar’s right is a Kaiser Wilhelm I Centennial Medal commemorating his birthday’s 100th anniversary (1787-1897). The two decorations are mounted on correct ribbons that show some soiling.
