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.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
