Phillippe, I really like these hard-cover presentation documents. They are challenging to find.
Defense of Leningrad Medal document, in special hard presentation folder, awarded to Captain Lieutenant Georgiy Stepanov on July 4th, 1943, Serial #R11672.

Outstanding, Phillippe, another excellent example. I recently saw a hardbound example of a Defense of the Caucasus document belonging to another collector colleague, the only such example I have ever seen. The hunt continues. . .
Just procured a document for the Medal for Victory over Germany issued to Ekaterina Stepanova Chuglazova, August 4th, 1945, Serial #V0201717.

Nice! She was a volnonayomnaya, or civilian employee.

Indeed, hard-cover documents are rare ones, congratulations!
The verses printed on the inside reveal of the cover start with:
'Your future grandson will hold with reverence
This heroic medal
Which will be passed over to your descendants from generation to generation'
