  1. Italian medal WWI

    Hallo everybody, I would like to share an italian medal from WWI. This is the one celebrating the annexation of South Tyrol and Trieste town. I know, it's a common medal but still is a good one. bye bye
  2. Hallo everybody, I'm new in the forum and I just started to collect war's medals. I'm italianand here in Milan it's quite easy to find italians medal from WWI and WWII. As I was in London last week I headed to Cecil's Court, ended up in a small shop and bought a George VI star medal from 1939/1945. I know nothing about medals, I just paid 12£ for this one and this was a good reason itself to buy a charmy one. Due to my lack of experience I'm not sure if the piece is authentic or not. The ribbon is in very well preserved, the medal is not attracted by magnets (if it can help). So, I ask you experts to help me in understanding if the medal is areal and original one or if it's just a beautiful repro. Mamy thanks and cheers from Milano..
  3. Hi Laurentius, many thanks for your prompt reply. Glad to know it's authentic and in particular trifolded austrian version. Dankuu...
  4. Hallo everybody! Here's a medal found in a small shop in Cecil's Court, London. I'd wish to know your opinion about this, and to find out if it's an authentic one... I just paid 12£ pounds for it, wich is not too much -on ebay you'd pay about 25/30£ for a real one- so this is quite cheap, I thought. The medals attracts magnets but, on reverse side, I cannot read any producer's markers at all. Thans to those willing to help me. Thanks and a big CIAO from Italy to all forumers...
