    Default Defense of the Caucasus Medal with maker stamped suspension

    A recent addition to the collection is this Defense of the Caucasus Medal with a maker stamped suspension, НКМП РСФСР (Народный Комиссариат Местной Промышленности), the Moscow based factory of the People's Commissariat Of Local Industry of the RSFSR. I am grateful to have learned this from an esteemed collector colleague on the Soviet Military Awards Page Forum.

    Thank you, gentlemen; while certainly not one of the rarest "Defense of . . ." Medals, only 870,000 were awarded (R1), it and the award document remains one of my favorites. I will post some additional examples from the collection.

    Another beautiful medal Bill, and one I am yet to purchase. Good to learn about the suspension and how it could be marked.
