Here are a few more Kaiser/King's prize awards.

Bavarian Infantry and Artillery

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.



View attachment 11201
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.
Do you own the 1914 Jager Prize ? Thanks Steve McFarland

Steve; You are right, of the 26 that I have seen only about 3 had C.E. Juncker markings. Most of the backings are blank. Never have seen any other maker marks!
Dick ;
Are you writing that you have 26 Kaiser prizes in your collection ?
Thanks
Steve
 
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!!!

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

This is a great thread! Lots of great items and information!

Thought I would share a Kaiserliche Marine tunic I picked up last weekend with a Kaiserabzeichen originally sewn on. From what I read here and some other German references, I think it is a Marine issue Kaiserabzeichen.

A "Paul Meybauer, Berlin" marked example. If we can assume such based on only the backplate being marked. Unlike the "C.E. Juncker" marked examples.
