Afrika medal type 2

Hello,

I would like to share with you my last acquisition : an Afrika medal (Medaille für den italienisch-deutschen Feldzug in Afrika). It is a type 2 based on Antonio Scapini classification (LORIOLI MILANO on the left; DE MARCHIS long writting...).

Hi Clem, thanks for joining our forum and posting this nice medal with what appears to be it's original ribbon.

I have the same version in my collection, with a stitched safety pin in an identical position on the ribbon for mounting on a tunic.

Regards Markus.
