    Default Medal for the Defense of Stalingrad - Ribbon a Replacement?

    I've had this medal for pretty long and I was just playing with it in my hands, then I noticed that the ribbon is adjusted in a wrong way, with the left side overlapping the right one. The medal seems like variation 1, with the ring being soldered into the the medal and the suspension mount also is first variation. Is the ribbon most likely replaced?

    The ribbon would not have been issued like this, so although it may be original in itself, it has been reattached at some point.
