    I just picked this up at a flea market. To me it looks like it could be veteran’s medal of some sort. The markings on the front might possibly indicated 1st Prussian, of course could be way off. The style of engraving on front and back lead me to believe it’s of German origin. Has anyone seen one of these before?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    The "1/Pr." is more likely to be "1st Prize". The medal is probably a civilian shooting competition prize. The green/white ribbon also indicates Saxony.
