    It's a nice MZPP variant. Manufactured at the Platinapribor Factory in Moscow (Московском Заводе Платиноприбор), in 1945, and representing only 10% of the total production of this order, it was probably awarded early 1945. Note the characteristic small (8mm) mint mark and "sloppy" engraving of the serial number.

    Hi Bill

    Thanks a lot for your explanation. Very good to know it's an original one.
    Sorry for the question but I'm a bit "new" on this - if I wanted to do a research on this medal nbr where should I turn to?
    Thank you

    I would rely on Forum Member "Auke" for research and translation services.

    Decided to ask forum member Auke to do the complete research on this medal (was very curious to find out if there was a "face to put on this medal" - and there was!) Auke did a great job and works very fast
    Did a "small file" on the medal

    Dang, he certainly gives new meaning to 'bravery in the face of danger/the enemy!'
