Could you possibly post a photo of the back.
This is the only photo, that I have at this moment of time, because I've yet to receive the order. I've contacted the dealer to send an photo thoe.

Do you have serial number from the reverse? That will give a lot of information regarding possible award date. If it turns out to be a 1985 Jubilee Issue, I think you paid too much, a World War II issued piece, the price is fair, in my opinion. . .
At first sight a second type seeing the hammer and sickle , is already good news !
The number is 560496, so it is wartime. You can also see from the construction of the hammer and sickle, if it's war time or an '85 issue. Does anyone know, what year/month this would been awarded? I heard it is possible to give an estimate, using the order's number.
First quarter 1945
Who do you guys use to research the archives, in Russia? For the awards owner and information. I have one contact, but I'd like to hear of others too, if possible.
I use forum member "Auke" for research and translation services, as well as Paul Schmitt, he exclusively for translations.
