Red face Italo / German campaign medal


I was wondering howmany types of Italo / German campaign medals are existing ?

I have had the luck to become the friend of a LW Regt " Barenthin " veteran in the recent years who was taken POW in Afrika in 1943 . One of his medals he still had ( because this one was end home before the captivity ) was this Italo / German campaign medal wich I received during this week in the post.

This medal is very nicely made and has the following maker mark " Lorioli Milano " in tiny lettering besides the left feet of the crocodile and incused the name " De Marchis " => this particular medal is very light IMHO : 11 gram ( including the sewn on ribbon )

I will try to post pictures in the next few days but is it possible to show known original variants of this medal ? Im interested in weights, material, etc .. all the info that is possible to get .

Cordial Greeting and thanks for the help
