A Spanish Civil War Medal for the Campaign of 1936-1939

Spain: Bronze gilt and a black matte finish, 37 mm, laterally-pierced ball suspension, original ribbon, on a traditional Spanish-style horizontal hanger with pinback, mint. In its cardboard box of issue, maker marked "INDUSTRIAS EGAÑA MOTRICO" on the front, with its original waxed paper wrapper, left end panel missing, separation evident on the seams, spotting, box fair.

Footnote: The medal was established on January 26, 1937 and awarded to members of the Falangist forces fighting against the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War. The date on the medal of July 17, 1936 is that of the beginning of the armed rebellion against the Republican government. The rebels failed to take control of major cities, including Madrid and Barcelona, although the government could not successfully suppress the uprising. A long and bloody civil war followed and lasted until April 1, 1939. This led to atrocities on both sides and eventual victory for the conservative rebels.
