Prussian Artillery dated 1905 and 1906. The only unit to win an artillery Kaiser Prize in consecutive years was the 5th Battery of Artillery Regiment 4.

As previously indicated the last award of the prizes was 1913. Before the war interrupted, there were apparently plans for the competitions in 1914.
This 1914 dated prize was never issued.

When a company in one of the regiments for which William II was the honorary chief won a Kaiser prize the company was awarded this Kaiserschnur. A silver plaque was also placed in the officer casino and the company commander was given the Red Eagle order fourth class.
Dick ;Steve: About 10 years ago I had 26 offered to me,but Unfortuneatly I did not have enough money to afford them!! I did purchase 6 of them, some were sold at SOS in 2013! Sure wish I had bought them all, but not enough money at the time. Still have a list of what was offered at the time, but no photos!!!
I wanted to add a few Naval hat bands to my photo and my Naval Kaiser Prizes .Photo of a Naval man wearing a Naval Kaiser prize
The prize is mounted on the sleeve lower that I would have expected
He served aboard the Mecklenburg which means the Kaiser Prize must be for 1908
Now to find a Naval hat band for the Mecklenburg to go with the display
