Title 1859 Campaign of Italy medal
Nationality French
Period 1859
Price £50.00

This is Napoleon III's medal for the 1859 campaign, mostly fought in northern Italy against Austrian troops. On the reverse is 'Campagne d'Italie' with the names of six battles, including Magenta and Solferino, perhaps the most famous one. The artist's signature is below the emperor's bust, which is surrounded by the logo 'Napoleon III empereur'.

The condition is GVF. There is some old tarnish to the piece and the ribbon is slightly soiled, though better than it appears in the picture, but it is at least the original ribbon.

I am just dropping your company a line to say thank you for the 2nd WW Iron Cross, that my brother has purchased off your site Thursday evening. We received it 1st class today and it is in excellent condition. Many thanks again.
