Article on the German Afrika Korps Medal

(CS396) A Nice Early Issue Italian made Afrika Corps Medal given by the Italians to the German counterparts in the Afrika Corps. This example a very nice bronze striking. Complete with only a tiny piece of ribbon that was glued together. The award was banned in 1944 when Italy defected to the allied cause. It is interesting to know the award in the 57 version was re-instituted. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)
(MC33) A Nice example of the Italian given German Afrika Corps Medal. The medal is the maker marked LORIOLI MILANO type which is over the left foot of the crocodile. To the base, it has the designer's name and the poor English crocodile is being wrestled by Italy and Germany. The award comes with its original sewn up but grubby ribbon This was part of a group picked up by someone who was obviously in charge of de-nazification or had light fingers! GBP 110.00 (UK Pounds)

(S234) A Nice Early issue Italian DAK Medal given to the German Afrika Corps who supported Mussolini's forces in Libya and beyond. The award is a bronze circular medal showing two gladiators wrestling the English crocodile. This crocodile has the designer's name to the base and the maker's name to the lefthand side of his foot. To the other side, you have the fasces and swastika along with the knot of savoy and the gate to the doorway of Libya, if memory serves me correct. Complete with an original piece of ribbon, the award is in very good condition. GBP 110.00 (UK Pounds)

(T94) A German/Italian Afrika Medal that has been repaired. Someone has replaced the original suspender and affixed their own type to it. This is done with lead solder and looks like it has been done in a bazarre. The medal other than this, is in used condition and is suspended from a piece of metal mount 15 mm ribbon, which fits it perfectly. Scarce to find. Priced for condition. GBP 60.00 (UK Pounds)
