    It’s a prize from a German sport shooting competition. This style of prize medal (which will often have the prize level and/or town engraved on the reverse) was in use from the 1870s thtough the mid-1930s. The ribbon looks like it was originally green and white, which would indicate its origin was in Saxony.

    German shooting clubs were very common and they held regular competitions, so the medals are commonly found.

    Can we get a better view of the ribbon to my eyes some blue in there, so Bavaria?

    These are avidly collected in Germany I believe.
