Rare Original Italy Al Valore Militare Medal 1913 Libyan Campaign Pre Ww1

Rare original Bronze medal Al Valore Militare in Bronze. Measures approximately 1 5/16 in diameter. Weighs 18.2 grams on a jewelers scale including ribbon (and I estimate that the ribbon weighs one gram of that). Engraved to Carlini Carlo and ANGELAT – 1 MARZO 1913. My notes indicate that Carlino was a Captain in the 6th Alpine Division, and was from Brescia. The ribbon is soiled, stained and has some white areas as well as stitching on the face. The medal shows light to moderate wear with some scratches and spotty tarnish overall. Scrapes on a portion of the edge. This is a hobby not a living, so I try to keep it fun, otherwise why do it. _gsrx_vers_632 GS 6.9.8 (632).

RARE WW1 1st GOLD STAR MOTHERS PILGRIMAGE OFFICIAL NAMED NUMBERED MEDAL MISSOURI

Rare, medal PILGRIMAGE OF GOLD STAR MOTHERS. Measures approximately 1 5/8″ across at the name tag, and the medal measures approximately 7/8″ across at the widest. The name tag reads, in raised letters, Mrs. The medal is numbered 3318 on the reverse along with the hallmark of Bailey Banks and Biddle. A finely made piece! The name tag portion is tarnished and has a number of black spots. The little name plate is bent upwards in the center — not creased so it could probably be straightened. The ribbon is in poor condition — split in several places, faded and soiled. The medal shows moderate wear and tarnish with surface dirt and some black spots, with a large one on the internal angle of the star on the left. In March 1929, eleven years after World War I, the U. Congress passed a law authorizing the use of government funds to pay for mothers and widows of fallen veterans (“Gold Star” mothers and widows) to visit their loved ones buried on the battlefields of Europe. This unprecedented program honoring the “Gold Star” mothers and widows was entrusted to the Quartermaster Corps for implementation. Some 6,693 Gold Star mothers and war widows made the pilgrimage abroad. This is a hobby, not a living, so I try to keep it fun, otherwise why do it. _gsrx_vers_827 GS 7.0.13 (827).
