Gorgeous Imperial German 1914 Iron Cross First Class. Jeweler quality with a nice convex vaulted shape. The center of the reverse is marked 900 silver and the patina throughout certainly backs this up. Lovely untouched cross with a great look would fit well into advanced collections.

Nice wound badge and matching document. Document is in decent shape with the usual crease down the middle. For its age the corners are reasonably sharp and there are no tears or missing material. The last name looks like Kargelain. I can't make out the unit but it looks like it starts with "mg" so possibly a machine gunner? Dated October 5, 1918. The wound badge is very attractive example with nice raised details...

Lovely Imperial German four place stickpin. The first medal is a nice enamel 1914 iron cross but the prize in the row is the second medal which is a lovely Bavarian merit cross with very fine detail and nice blue enamel arms. The row is finished by a Hindenburg Cross and a black wound badge. Very nice lapel pin intended for wear by the recipient of these medals while in civilian clothes.

Interesting set of two Romanian WWII medals. The first is for the anti-communist crusade they were forced to join in 1941. The second is from when the first crusade failed and they were again forced to join the war against Germany. The pair makes for an interesting conversation point.

Very nice enamel cross for a veterans' organization member's 25 years of service. Really very nice enamel work. This is a good sized medal shown with a penny for size comparison. Just 2 or 3 mm shorter wingspan then a 1939 iron cross.

Nice two place Baden medal bar. The Baden service medal shows some bubbling of the finish. The iron cross is a beauty with a very strange hallmark. It is hard to make out but looks like it is probably the WILM hallmark which is an odd variant. If not it is just some other weird variant so cool regardless. Lovely cross if you are one looking for different variants.

Very attractive medal reading BATTAGLIONE GENIO PIONIERI "CENTAURO", which of course refers to the engineer battalion of the Centauro Division. In the middle of this wording is the unit emblem of the centaur shooting an arrow. On the reverse is a nice rendition of what seems to be a tank using a plow to clear a path through obstructions and a pontoon bridge in background; Both good engineer references. The Centauro Division was formed in early 1939 by expanding the 1st Armoured Brigade Corazzata...

Very nice silver medal; The 1870 Medal of Merit for the City of Rome. The only negative is the blob of wax on the ribbon which could certainly be removed by someone properly motivated. The important point is that the original ribbon is present. ROMA is found on the ring attaching the medal to the suspension ring. Very nice medal.

Two place 1914 Iron Cross medal bar with matching ribbon bar. The second medal is Hindenburg Cross. The Iron Cross is a real nice example with very pleasant toning and an overall look just the way we like them. The red stripe on the Hindenburg is a bit faded and there is also a bit of red staining. Perhaps the poor guy got shot in his dress uniform? Otherwise the ribbons are structurally in good shape with no fraying and a very nicely done wrap job...

Very scarce Group Six Assaulting Battalions Medal. This was some campaign in East Africa and the same instance from which the more famous Montagna Cross arose. Fascist medal made in 1935 and designed by Costantino Affer. Obverse is Mussolini giving his Roman salute. Around him are the battalion names. The reverse shows two gladii over a fasces. In the center is the place names where these battalions particularly distinguished themselves in battle. Unfortunately this is the incorrect ribbon...
