The Victory Medal was optional and out of a possible sixteen countries, fourteen issued medals. The countries were Great Britain, Belgium, Brazil, Cuba, Czechoslovakia (Serbia), France, Greece, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Romania, Thailand (Siam), Union of South Africa and United States of America.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The circular bronze medal is about 4cm in diameter, with a suspension ring. The front shows the winged figure of Victory while the reverse of the medal has the Italian center motif along with the names of the fourteen Allied countries. The ribbon, which shows wear and fraying, is complete with its original pinback device with two bars: "St. Mihiel" and "Defensive Sector."
