This veterans’ medal, measuring 1 1/8″ in diameter, was made to celebrate the unveiling on 3 July 1927 of a monument honoring the 15 Infanterie Regiment König Friedrich August (III) von Sächsen. The regiment was created in 1722 and garrisoned at Neuburg on the Donau. It was attached to the Bavarian I Armeekorps. It was disbanded in 1919. The gilt medal’s obverse features a high-relief rendition of the monument. The upper half’s edge sports the following words, “Denkmals Enthüllung K. B. 15. I. R. Neuburg a. D.,” while the date “3 July 1927” appears across the bottom. Its reverse is plain, except for a hallmark listing the manufacturer’s name and location, “C. Poellath” in “Schrobenhausen” (Bavaria). Poellath was a well-known Bavarian maker of high-quality decorations and Bavarian Flight Badges. This handsome medal sports an eyelet at the top by which it can be attached to a slender chain.
