Iraq Medal of Al Rumelia oilfield 1972

This is a very beautiful Iraq medal it arrived today in the mail~

-I can say that this is the first I have seen in this condition, most of the ones I seen were damaged and the asking prices were $450-$600.00 in poor condition~

I found out that the medal was designed by an Iraq Artist named “MOHAMMED GANI HIKMAT”

-I am not sure if the name is spelled correctly but his signature is written lower right on the back of the medal~

-I believe he also created the Heroes of Al Qadassiya solid gold Badge in the 1980’s~

Lorenzo,

Nice to see an example in such good condition although I am fairly sure that the ribbon is incorrect. The one I have is missing the suspension bar and the gold inset oil derrick and republican eagle are also missing - I don't know if these insets are real gold but someone must have thought so and prised them out. There is also a desk medallion of this medal but the medallion is a one piece item with no inset derrick or eagle.

Regards,

Owain

Good to hear from you again, I was wondering if you could post an image of the table-medallion?

I was told that the medal was made from nickel copper of some sort.
