    Default Soviet WW2 medal

    Hi guys,

    I fell for this salty medal today. Any thoughts on it at all. I´m not an expert in these but I was hoping that this might be one with an original ribbon to it?

    Hi Jan, the ribbon is incorrect for this medal.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is a postwar combat merit medal and as Ade says it is the wrong ribbon (both Order of Glory and Victory over Germany medal have this ribbon and this one is most likely taken from the abundantly available Victory over Germany medal).

    Edit: suspension is also a replacement with connecting ring that is not from a medal.

    Thanks Marcel, this clarifies the situation. As for the ribbon itself, could it be original (the first attached ribbon)?

    Yes, the ribbon is original to this suspension. Abundantly available on ebay in this condition for less than € 5 (for suspension with ribbon). It is a suspension seen on many late 40's Victory over Germany medals.

    Thanks again. So the search for a well worn (postwar ) combat merit medal ribbon and a well worn medal for the victory over Germany in the Great Patriotic War 1941–1945 starts

    Forever grateful Marcel.

    Even though this is just a small item I would like to do it justice.

    Best, Jan
