I have a boxed WW2 Ostvolk 1st Class Gold Medal. The medal has lost a large amount of its original gold gilding, as is the case with most of these medals of this age, but it is still visible especially on the rear pin. The box has seen better days and although it fastens shut, there is a gap when closed. The leather is also distressed and worn. Please see photos for the full details. Here’s some more info about the history of the medal. When Germany invaded the USSR in 1941, many citizens of Soviet territories volunteered to serve and fight with the German forces against the Soviet Union. At first these troops were issued German medals in the same way as regular troops were, however, due to racial tensions between’Aryans’ and’Slavs’ this practice was soon forbidden. The Ostvolk Medal was introduced in 1942 instead. German soldiers themselves were not eligible and it could only be awarded to citizens of the Soviet Union who served with the German military or aided the German occupation in some capacity. Each version of both classes could be awarded either with swords for bravery or without swords for merit. The 1st class was only awarded to those who had already received the 2nd class although, exceptionally, the two classes could be awarded together.
