You are correct now. This is an older medal from the late 40's or early 50's. Copied from Auke's site:
On January 30, 1947 the Secretariat of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR officially decided that the Soviet mints stop numbering the Medal for Combat Merit.

This variation plus the brass suspension and old ribbon make this a medal from the late 1940s or 1950s.
