Ww2 Malta Convoy Veterans Medal Group With Malta Medal & M.i.d, Court Mounted For Sale
Over the past 25 years I have collected items like a squirrel with no particular theme other than I have an interest in military items & small vintage collects items. Sadly due to other collecting interests the time has come to offer some of the gems from my collection for sale to you. Most items are fresh to the market having been purchased over the years direct from deceased estates and a network of contacts in the antique and house clearance trade in county Durham. I hope you enjoy my offerings and good luck to all buyers.
Asuperb full size, genuine group of original WW2 campaign medals that includes a very nice 100% genuine example of the Malta George cross 50th anniversary medal that was given to entitled British veterans by the Goverment of Malta to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the siege
1939-45 star, Atlantic star, Africa star with North Africa 1942-43 clasp, Italy star, Defence medal, War medal with M.I.D Oakleaf & Malta George cross 50th anniversary medal
all court mounted on a wearing bar by Spink & sons of london
sadly as is the case with all WW2 medals issued to British recipients this group is unnamed as issued and i have no photographs or paperwork to go with it. a wonderful group that could tell a fantastic story if only it could talk?
all the medals are 100% genuine original medals and are in NEF or better condition. however the North Africa clasp on the Africa star is a replacement issue that was probably added by Spinks at the recipients request when he had the group court mounted following the award of the Malta medal in 1992
it is worthy of note that the Malta medal is valued at over £100 in the medal yearbook
