    Thanks Bill... While I'm at it, I might as well post this Victory Over Germany medal, too. If it ends up being fake, I didn't make out too bad as the same seller who sold me the Moscow medal threw it into the deal for $5.

    Yeah... it really wouldn't make sense to counterfeit these. It would be like trying to make fake pennies... You'd probably spend more money trying to make them than you'd be able to make profit by selling them!

    Thank you very much, Dom, I stand corrected. I also like the chart you have displayed of the variations of this medal. I have saved it to my computer as a most valuable visual reference. . .

    I'm sorry but this medal of the Defense of Moscow does not correspond to anything known.
    I brought some elements, I hope the people who say that this medal is original are able to justify their answers.

    My assessment of the pictures and descriptions posted at the beginning of this thread was based on the separately soldered ring. I suspect the suspension was "upgraded", but there was no indication of the ring being cut. Regardless, it does seem to visually correspond to the variation 1 example to which a link was thoughtfully provided above and from which this picture was obtained.
