Hello Lambert,

Yes; it is the wide variety that makes collecting these items interesting. When I have time I will post a pic of an Italian war commemorative mini with four dated year bars.

Regards,

Rob

Hello Lambert,

While a little off-topic, here is the miniature italian war commemorative medal. It is part of a larger mini group of 5, including a vic, that I am re-constructing.

It is maker marked 'S J' (Stephano Johnson) immediately below the wreath on the central bottom of the obverse. In addition the designers mark 'S.C' for Silvio Canevari is to the right, as viewed, of the bust of the King.

Such detail from a miniature only 18mm in diameter is good workmanship.

The dated year bars are also a nice design.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Rob

I have noticed this bidder, bids on a lot of things. When he sets his mine to the fact that he wants it, he put a very high number so matter what you bid you will lost. He just won all four items and all four are sand casted items?

1. Cuban sand casting = $236.50 item # 260946754425

2. Greek sand casting = $224.50 item #250985650285

3. Italian sand casting = $52.02 item #250985646621

4. Siam sand casting $235.95 ( the sand cast was of the repro medal not the original one). item #250985637512

I post this to say to all members if you need help in ID-ing something reach out to one of the many forum members for a second opinion by sending them a email.

Yep - another poor casting. Pitted and low on detail.

Bill

It is still marked. "made in france"

Lambert

Hello Bill & Lambert,

The French firm of M. Delande (Paris) produced reproductions, including cast copies, of all the vic series. This was during the late 1920s and early 1930s timeframe.

The requirement for medals to have their country of origin was due to the US Tariff Law of 1931. In that regard there appeared to be nothing wrong with that particular cast Italian reproduction.

Regards,

Rob

Hi Gents,

My latest acquisition is the Czech-made Italian vic Unofficial type 1:

czechitaly01.jpg

Obverse

czechitaly02.jpg

Reverse.

It seems to be relatively crudely made, with the staffa a little off-set from the central position - particularly noticable in the reverse view. Diameter 34mm, and what looks like a Czech-style ribbon.

Any comments welcome.

Bill

Hello Bill,

A nice piece. These examples are becoming harder to find even in Italy. Interesting that it has a unblended ribbon.

Hello Jim.

I do not know this kind, some model is dated to 1915-1918 Vic's Italian?

I know that some diplome of the commemorative medal for 1915-1918, authorized the use of the medal or Allied Victory together.

Diploma Commemorative Medal 1915-1918 with additional comment (see below) allowing the wearing of the medal or Allied Victory: so this is a "double degree".

Hi Oliver

FM Lorioli & Castelli-Milano is the maker, G.Villa was the person who made the dies for making the medal. Gaetano Orsolini designed the medal, you will see Orsolini MOD on Italalian VM's to the left of the makers name.

Depending on the VM type you will see a difference in makers name, designers name and die sinkers name.

Hello!

You do not understand!

There is an official type 3 by Laszlo.

On the obverse left of the inscription "ORSOLINO MOD." Right in two lines «F.M. LORIOLLI & CASTELLI MILANO ».

The reverse "G.Villa" is missing.

And there is the same type, but in reverse "G.Villa"?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
