Hello everybody. I'm proposing not the medal itself, which is the well known Sacchini's version with its envelope, but the temporary authorization to use the medal. This document is not very common, since it was always changed with the official diploma as soon as possible. It is just a small piece of paper, dated 1928 from Perugia in this case.859.jpg

Hello Gentlemen,


Lorioli Type (short signature) with different suspension device: "angular staffa"
The "staffa" does not seem to have traces of welding

Anyone knows other Italian Victory Medals with this suspension device?

Thank's

Hello Gentlemen,

The Italian Victory medal unofficial type 3 is very rare...
I know only two collectors in Italy who have it,
one of this medal is in bronze, the other in white metal,
These medals have the "staffa" as a suspension device...
The medal in my photo is the one mentioned by Laslo on page 57 (note 18)

"The unofficial type 3 obverse design also apears on a Belgian medal of the period. ..."  

The reverse is blank

The suspension device is a ball

The ribbon is the same described by Laslo (note 18)

and it is the only medal I've seen of this type.

Can we consider this medal like "Italian unofficial type 3-A ?

After much hunting, I completed my collection of the three variants of Lorioli's Italian medal.

Hello David,

Don't forget to try and obtain the variety that doesn't have a makers name.  It is listed as the official type 4.  It is harder to obtain than the other three but is out there in the marketplace.

Regards,
Rob

Hello Claudio,

I have also seen these initial victory medal authorisation documents glued onto the corresponding diploma for the Italian War Medal 1915-1918 (Medaglia Dell Guerra 1915-1918). There is, as you have suggested, great variety in these authorisation documents.

Regards,
Rob

I was only aware of three.  Can someone post a comparison of the four types?
