Austro-Hungarian Medal To Russian Regiments.

This Bronze medal is the Austro-Hungarian "Inhaber-Jubiläums-Medaille Für Ausländer 1908" which translates as "Commander's Jubilee Medal For Foreigners" which to my understanding was issued to "deserving" enlisted men of the Kexholm Life Guards Grenadier Regiment and 12th Belgorod Lancer Regiment (as well as the 6 other non-Austro-Hungarian Regiments) that the Emperor Franz Joseph was honorary Colonel in Chief of. Apparently less than 3000 of these medals were issued to all 8 Regiments, so if the Russians got 1/4 of them there would have been less than 750 awarded to Russians in 1908. I was wondering if anyone out there had any pictures of these two Russian Regiments showing the wear of this medal? It has the same ribbon as the 1912 Mobilisation Cross but no Russians were ever awarded that. I was given this medal at Sotherby's in London in 1993 and I didn't work out what it was (exactly) until a couple of years ago as it is an obscure Austro-Hungarian award mainly overlooked as it wasn't issued to Austro-Hungarians.
