    Hi,

    Both medals have identical mint mark on the ring but unfortnately my camera sux so i couldn't get a clear pic of it.

    Cheers-

    Darren.

    Hi Darren, they made 36 million of these! Are you sure about one of these being fake? I don't see it myself. This maker "LMD" (Leningrad Mint) made two versions, the type 2 and type 3.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,

    No, neither are fake/repro. A trick question i guess you could say, just a way of verifying what i suspected without doing the ususal real or fake thread.

    Very very cheap but being that such a huge number of these were made its not surprising. My knowledge on Soviet militaria is quite limited i must admit but i did a bit of research online and looked over the medal many times, compared it to pics online and couldnt foult it.

    It may be a common medal and as cheap as chips but i like it.

    Cheers-

    Darren.

    They are good attractive medals.

    Cheers, Ade.
