Medaille für den Italiensch-Deutschen Feldzug in Afrika
Does anyone have any comments on how this medal looks or if anything is wrong with it? There is small writing to the right of the crocodile's hand and under his head on the front. The detail seems clear and sharp. Was it true the Germans were banned from wearing these after the Italian surrender? Would that make them rarer?

It looks original to me

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
