Soviet Medal for 20th Anniversary of RKKA (Workers and Peasants Red Army), 1938 issue. This is GUARANTEED 100% ORIGINAL medal officially awarded by the Soviet government NOT a replica! Medallion is in silver and enamel; measures 32.2 mm wide, weighs 24.8 grams not including the suspension and connecting link. Originally, this medal was issued on a small Type 1 rectangular suspension, but almost all of those were discarded and replaced for the 5-sided suspensions after the 1943 change in Soviet regulations. The medal is in GREAT condition, especially for a pre-WW2 Soviet military award. The enamel is extremely well preserved having only a few tiny flakes on the top arm and several miniscule contact marks elsewhere, none of them very noticeable. There is not much rubbing and the enamel still retains its beautiful original luster. The enamel on this medal is 100% ORIGINAL, has not been repaired or replaced. The silver likewise does not show significant wear, only some microscopic dings. The raised details on the reverse are exceptionally crisp including the grass under the soldiers feet (this detail is often blurred on many of the fakes that we see on the market). The medal is free of bumps, nicks, or any other significant flaws. There is very attractive dark patina to silver on both sides. The medal comes on a WW2 era suspension device, a two-layer model in steel with self-locking pin. The ribbon is fairly old but well-preserved, shows only minimal wear. This is a superb example of the important Soviet military award, and it can be a worthy addition to any medal collection!
