    Question Validy check on my 4 USSR WW2 medals

    I bought these 4 medals in Ukraine this year, and I am worried that they are fake because i found out that 2 other medals i bought in Ukraine was fake. So here i post close ups on medals and hope that someone can tell me if they are fake or not.



    This one i am really worried about. I bought this one and 2 other medals from a guy at a flee market. The other 2 medals where fake so i guess this one might be too. What do you think?

    I think all is good with Region (and all other medals). The original medal was made of poor-quality brass leaf. This was the cause of all numerous bowls and caverns. The stamp and ring are pleasant to me.

    I think it’s a postwar awarding. But since 1948 “Combat Service" and "Bravery" medals was become nonnumbered. Thus it may be supposed that your medals was given in 1945-1946.

    Thanks Molodes! It makes me happy that you think the polar is original. Which of the 2 silver medals is given 45-46? One or just both? Cheers!

    IMHO, most probably that the "for Combat Service" was given a little earlier (may be in 1945) and "for Bravery" - in 1945-46
