Commemorative medals were issued to other Regio Esercito higher formations as well. I’m not aware of particularly limiting award criteria or of so fewawards to class it as rare. BTW, a zinc alloy quality existed too, either a maker's variation or a later production.

I've seen this medal being offered for sale for anything between 25 and 40 euros, whereas another dealer sings the praises of it and charges 130 euros for it ... you know, it's business.
