Article about: Hi everyone, I found this medal quite unusual with some strange artwork and I bought it, I read that there are bronze and silver versions, think this is silver by the look of it, but it's go

    Every other Afrika medal Mario has on the site is a bronze one so you probably made a good spot there Ade. Is Mario quite experienced do you know, just wondering if he can see that medal up close why he'd think it was silver and not originally bronze?

    In theory Ade does that mean a silver could be a possibility if other collectors/dealers are advertising it for sale (even if it is wrong), as in that it was made as the least desirable of the two types? Also, could mine be a faded bronze one do you think like that Mario picture?

    Cheers,

    Rich.

    I suggest this is a zinc medal with the bronze finish absorbed/worn off over time.
    My thoughts exactly.

    I think anyone who sells a silver one has been reading Ailsby's books. There is no 'silver' version or grade. It was finished in bronze only. Anyone who claims they have a silver version is wrong or mistaken. The 'silver' medals aren't really silver anyhow, they're grey where the bronze finish has been absorbed into the base metal.

    It's still a bronze medal, there just isn't any finish left. No silver version existed.

    If I do ever find one Ade, you have to buy me a pint :P Would you say the one I picked up (for £40 so I'm not too burned if it's bad news) was originally bronze or just out and out repro?

    I will buy you a pint of Mermaid milk - possibly easier to obtain than a genuine silver Italiensch-Deutschen medal.

    Gotta agree with the others that a silver grade award is a fiction. Here is my De Marchis in BRONZE
