That's a very nice picture! The medal he is wearing is not an Iron Cross. I am not completely certain what it is.

You mentioned earlier that he was from Holstein, which means he coould have served in the Schleswig-Holstein army during the 1848/49 War aganst Denmark. If so, he would have been awarded the campaign medal for the war. This site shows an example of that medal
