    I bet the owner of this bar became a little upset when he could no longer wear it after the order (dated 29th March 1944) prohibited the further wearing of the Italian-German campaign medal.? sad.gif

    John .... interesting bar. This pretty much works in the favor that these Afrika Medals are good. Can you get a reverse pic of the Africa Medal? Is the mm on the left or right when viewed at the reverse? Is the name on the bottom incluse or relief? Probably relief based on this type jumping.gif

    This is what his "before" set looks like:
