Very cool document with signatures from both Benito Mussolini and Victor Emmanuel III who of course was the King of Italy before and during the war. The letterhead to the document also adds the title IMPERATORE D'ETIOPIA as the Italians were very proud of this conquest as they began to flex their muscles in the colonial arena. Another point of interest are the stamps on the reverse. Both include the year date 1938 but the Fascists also started counting years again from the March On Rome. The XVI on these stamps indicate it had been 16 years since that event. Very cool historical piece.
