    Congratualtions!

    It is indeed a 1985 reissue version of the award. All Vets living in that year were given this award. Sadly they are not researchable unlike wartime issued awards. The wartime version has a separately applied hammer & sickle in real gold. A quick look at the reverse will show the two retaining lugs. The raised lettering of the mint mark is also only found on the 1985 versions.

    Have a look at this site and the section on the 1985 issues. You will find that there are some variations to be discovered. These are still a fairly priced award so it is possible to try and find all the variations and build up a complete collection of them.
