Italienisch-deutschen Feldzug in Afrika medal for review and question.

    I would agree with Gwar. A nice example with a sun faded ribbon. In my opinion it is better to have the sun faded ribbon rather than a repo ribbon which is often seen on originals.

    The majority of these awards were 'italian made', that is why it says "Milano' on them.

    I am away from my reference material at the moment but from memory this appears to be an early piece but not particularly rare.

    Nice item.

    These were always Italian made.

    The Germans later banned the wear of them after the Italians changed sides.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Antonio Scapini's book makes a case that there is a 'type 5' medal produced by Souval of Vienna (although such pieces maintain the 'Lorioli Milano' inscription). Is this a contentious claim?

    Not heard of that?

    But I know Antonio and I would respect his opinion.

    Cheers, Ade.

    After referring to my reference material, I conclude the thread example to be a good 'type 4', the last version of Milanese manufacture due to the engraved nature of the designer's name and the altar section of the Fileni arch being spaced away from the rim of the award.
