Italian, Fronte Russo [Russian Front] badge.

This badge was for Italian troops who served on the Russian front between 22nd June 1941 and 5th June 1943. It was also awarded to some German troops attached to C.S.I.R and the 8th Army Corps. Apparently the first issue of the badge had a vertical pin. They are very rare. Then they switched to a cheaper diagonally mounted pin. The makers details are on the reverse. Made from zinc , this one has suffered some corrosion or damage to the 'knot of Savoy'. 

£165 + postage at cost.
