Title Fascist Rome/Berlin Axis pin
Nationality Italian
Period 1936-39
Sold

This commemorates the diplomatic manoeuvures of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, which, starting in 1935, gradually drew both regimes together, culminating in the Axis and Pact of Steel Treaties with Mussolini finally committing himself to attacking France in summer 1940.

This is a good, clean example in an EPNS finish on a soft metal base, probably tombak or gilding metal. There is barely perceptible wear to the highlights.

Prov: from the J.R. Gaunt & Son Ltd. Pattern Book Archive, sold at auction by order of the National Army Museum, London.

The pommel arrived safely today... It's a nice little object and really quite tactile... As usual, it was a pleasure to do business with you and I look forward to finding something else in your stock to tempt me.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
