World War II Africa Star

During and after World War II the Government issued a series of Stars to honour the gallant heroes who fought in the different theatres of the war. Comes with a ribbon that is unique to the award. Offered here is the Africa medal. Remember these are the actual medals that were awarded and NOT reproductions. We feel honoured to be able to offer these medals in the form of stars and hope that those of you who buy one or more will feel the same. All come with the official ribbons and all are in nice collectable condition, but supplies are limited. Don’t forget they were issued some 70 plus years ago.

Picture of Italy, 1 Lire 1940 Extremely Fine

Italy, 1 Lire 1940 Extremely Fine

It happened in 1940 that Mussolini declared war on Great Britain; he sided with Hitler and the Japanese and decided he was going to win and take us over. We guess he didn’t win. On this large nickel coin, you have the head of Victor Emanuele III and on the other side, you have an eagle with his wings full spread and an axe behind him. You just don’t get many coins from Italy issued during World War II, especially from the year they declared war on us. We shan’t make jokes about the Italian armed forces, after all, a lot of people died in the battles with them. The coin is large and in Extremely Fine condition and we think it was a fantastic find. We are going to use them in our World War II Remembered Collection that will be coming out later this year. This coin is too important to wait for it, you can own it now.

Picture of World War II 1939-45 British War Medal

World War II 1939-45 British War Medal

In the past we have offered these two British World War II War Medals. But as they usually come from overseas the quality was alright but not all that great. We were recently offered from one of our contacts in Scotland a group of these War Medals in Brilliant brand new condition. We couldn’t believe it when wesaw them, they were brand new condition and as bright as the day they were struck. Here we present ‘The War Medal’ with the crowned bust of King George VI and the red, white and blue ribbon. We believe that they were bought directly from the Ministry of Defence and that is why they are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Obviously made for the War and just put away and forgotten. These are fantastic; the quality is the best that I have seen. You can have these Brilliant Uncirculated medals. We have never seen them so good and I might never see them this quality again. Simply Fantastic!

George III, 1813 Military Guinea Paperweight_obv

George III, 1813 Military Guinea Paperweight

In 1813 they struck the last Guinea ever, it was shortly to be replaced by the Sovereign. They were struck to pay English troops advancing into France and thus called The Military Guinea. This is a beautiful Proof rendition of that last ever ‘Military’ Guinea of 1813. You have the bust of King George III on the obverse wearing a laurel wreath the reverse has a crowned coat of arms. It has been gold plated and comes in a protective capsule. This is the first time that we have been able to offer these large paperweights. They were made years ago and ‘lost’ in our friend’s warehouse until now. They will never be made again and we think they are fantastic.
