Two medals awarded for labor services , on the left "Veteran of Labour" , to the right " For Labour".
Thank you so much for the information. From briefly reading on these two medals, it seems like you had to be pretty good at what you did to receive these? Especially since my Great-Grandfather wasn't Russian and didn't live in Russia. It doesn't seem like they gave it out to foreigners very often.
The Medal "For Labour Valour" was awarded to workers, farmers, specialists of the national economy, workers of science, culture, education, health and other to citizens of the USSR, and in exceptional cases, to foreign nationals
