    Default Soviet WWII Military Merit Medal #659425

    After a brief sabbatical from collecting Soviet militaria, I purchased this medal. It just arrived in the mail and I am very pleased with it. I absolutely love the patina. I'm hoping the relatively low serial number will yield an interesting citation!

    Thanks, Ade! I think so, too!!

    To be honest, I was disappointed when I first read the citation and saw "radio operator." I'm always hoping for a citation for a sniper, ppsh toting bad ass or tank driver...

    Then, I read: "her exemplary accomplishment of combat tasks... her self-control... her assignment..." and my disappointment melted away.
