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

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.

Bayonet arrived safe and well earlier, finally got a chance to unwrap it and have a quick peek and am very pleased, thanks!

Just to say many thanks for the fast service, it's an excellent little item. Will be watching for you listing more of these and other makes?
