Title Russian Front medal
Nationality Romanian
Period c 1939-45
Sold

This is the Romanian medal struck in 1941 to commemorate the alliance with Germany against Soviet Russia and on the back it has an inscription relating to the crusade against the oppression of Communism. These were the allies, who, along with the Hungarians, led to the loss of Stalingrad when their supporting flank collapsed.

The obverse has a rather splendid art deco motif of a young lady with braided hair, surrounded by a Romanian inscription.

The ribbon is heavily soiled, but is at any rate original. The medal is in GVF condition and struck in bronze.

testimonials

Thanks for the excellent service. I am really happy with my purchase. I look forward to buying from you again.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
