Hi,

It's my The Italo-German Campaign Medal knew as Type "A" from initial production because the Filene's arc don't touching the bord and Lorioli MM left positioned. Due the ribon colours sequence I think it belonged to a german soldier.

Very nice Type "A" DJ. If ribbon is originaly placed in it, I suppose it belonged to a italian soldier.

Nice ribbon bar with KVK too.

Fischer, a very nice example. Congratulations.
Is the backer plate a plated steel or is it brass? It's interesting as I only recall seeing silver metal backer plates along with a few plastic examples. Nice to see one in a different material or finish.

Thanks Joe...Curious, I did not notice the different backing plate and as you stated, I am used to seeing the silver plates. It looks to me like a brass, copper alloy and it has a bit of verdigris on one of the corners. I will have to do some searching.

I always thought this was an interesting award. Medaille für den Italienisch-Deutschen Feldzug in Afrika.

Does anyone have other examples to share? In wear photos? Award packets. Anything associated? smile
