    Looks like a variation 2 medal. The only problem I have is that it is in really good condition for being over 60 years old.

    The Soviet Military Awards Page. Medals, History and Russia! is a great online source

    If you're willing to spend some money you should get The Comprehensive Guide to Soviet Orders and Medals by Paul McDaniel and Paul J. Schmitt

    its a good web site to soviet medals ( russian language only )if you not read the russian , use the online translator PROMT - Free Online Translator and dictionary - English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian) and Russian languages.

    I think it looks like the medal, the suspension and the ribbon were made yesterday.

    It looks like a very good real medal, 2nd variant. This 2nd variant was active up to the end of the Soviet Union. So people could get this medal even in 1990 [medal found its hero]. By the way ammount of distributed medals of the both variants - 1 4700 000.

    Regardless, it's a beautiful example. . .

    And, of course, the dies are still in existance and may be used if in the wrong hands. Same is true for most Soviet medals and awards.
