I have bought today this Italian order of the Crown medal.
In the box stands L.Suscipj Corso Umberto I 258 Roma.
Because I've seen the first time, I've tried to find information about him,
Unfortunately without success.
Do anyone know more about L.Suscipj?
Can anyone the medal dated, is WWI or WWII?
Belong the medal and the box together?
Thanks for any info.
Best regards, Jannis

Any stamps or marks on the badge or ribbon ring?  Some outfitters retailed insignia made by other firms but in cases marked with their own logo.  If made after1934, there should be manufacturer marks identifing the original maker.

Thank you for your reply.
I have today won the auction, the pictures are from the auction,
So I can not know if a manufacturer marks has.
I believe like you, that he was not a manufacturer.
If I have received it,I will looking for manufacturer marks.
If I find any,will upload the pictures.

The orders were usually made as jevellery objects, unlike the ordinary medals. There can be a manifacturer mark or not. The box for sure is appropriate. The order is not related to the wars, so your question about WW1 or WW2 is not correct. Having the knots made of thin wire, you can guess it is a late production (after 1930). The Suscipj jewellery was established in 1825, as you can see from this invoice dated 1896 and this ad of early 1900

Hi Johannis,

Many times the Order and the box are not from the same maker or period.That is because down the time many collectors and dealers mix and match them

The ribbon looks very new to me

When you get the Order you can check for any makers marks

Perhaps some more advanced collectors of Italian Orders can identify the period of your Order from the picures

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
