Pretty Spanish enamel?

It is the Spanish 'Ifni Sahara' medal for officer.

What I have found : Ifni was ceded by Morocco to Spain in 1860, but Spanish administration was nominal until 1934; from then until 1958 its capital, Sidi Ifni, was the residence of the governor-general of Spanish Sahara (now Western Sahara). Border clashes between Spanish and Moroccan troops occurred in 1957 and all was over in 1958. Not many of these issued to officers.

Thanks Sal :D !

I don't collect medals from Spain... But I have been offered one (not this one), and I remember I made some research on the one I've been offered, as I did not have any clue about it. Doing this, I remember very well having seen yours...

Hope this helps.

Cheers.
