    I have been unable to identify this online -
    I can't make out the top word due to the hole, but the remaining translation appears to be:
    "of Mr. Ferd. Kern at his 25th anniversary of protecting Nuremberg"
    Can anyone help with this ? Thank you !

    I think the word is "Festschiessen" hidden behind the hole. This appears to me to be a 25 year (25 Jahrigen) festival or celebration medal for Nuremberg for September 4-6, 1887. So what happened in 1862? Maybe Ferd. Kern was celebrating 25 years in business.

    I like the Female Bird dipiction on the crest. It reminds me of the one on toy coin produced by L. Chr. Lauer of Nurnburg. It has a very oddly shaped 1 in the date.

    That is a harpy eagle. The 2 Pfennig posted by alurid is "play money" made by Ludwig Christian Lauer.

    Some of L Chr. Lauer's medals have made their way into museums.

    I think perhaps celebrating his 25 years in either the shooting club or military service and it took place in Nurnberg
