Here's the link. http://www.ebay.com/...=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

 

  See it while you can.  Unfortunately I don't know how to post these listings so they don't disappear.  Are there instructions for that?  If so, please let me know.

 

This is a great emblem, well trenched and with the Lira coin as a backing.  It got a few bids before someone got to the seller and convinced it to withdraw the emblem (do I smell big $$ here??)

 

Which of our members, I wonder, got it?

 

Anyway, check it out.

 

Steve

That one is a stunner. On my mobile I can't see if the coin is dated. But I remember the Med squadron was involved in earthquake relief when Messnia Sicily was destroyed in 1908. Wonder if there was a link between the Marine and that event.

In reference to the above bronze color discs, there is an old thread from 2010 about these type discs. I have a set of these type discs in bronze and gilt in my collection. I have never been able to officially authenticate them other than the older 2010 discussion about this type. I do tend to think they are correct and have the French style birds but are they war era or reunion?  see the following link http://www.usmilitar...3-collar-discs/
