    Default Any ideas on this soviet medal

    I picked this medal up at an antique shop about 7 months ago for around 5. my guess is that this is a victory over Germany medal as it has 1941-1945 written on it. however I'm really not sure as soviet items aren't really my area of collecting or knowledge for that matter. So any suggestions would be helpful as its just been siting around in a box of spare buttons and cap badges and I'd like to know a little bit more about it.


    On a side not i wish everybody on the forum a merry Christmas and a happy new year

    It's a Medal for Valiant Labor in the Great Patriotic War, see The Soviet Military Awards Page. Medals, History and Russia!
    Basically it's the civilian counterpart of the Victory over Germany medal. Over 16 million pieces were issued.

    This is what it should look like with its correct five pointed ribbon suspender.

    Merry Christmas to yourself and Auke .
