    Medal of Sino-Soviet Friendship, 1951 issue.

    Medal of Sino-Soviet Friendship, 1951 issue.

    Brass, enamels; measures 42.2 mm in height (incl. eyelet), 37.2 mm wide. The obverse shows national flags of the USSR and People's Republic of China and the motto on the red scroll "Long Live Sino-Soviet Friendship!" The reverse has raised inscription "People's Revolutionary Military Committee of the Central People's Government of the Chinese People's Republic" and the 1951 issue date.

    Very fine condition. The enamel on the flags shows scratches and rubbing, but no chips or flaking. There are tiny flakes and wear to enamel on the flags, no penetrating chips. The details are well preserved. The medal comes on original ribbon, complete with original tin star (this part was rather flimsy and prone to breaking off on the early versions of the medal, and is often missing on the surviving examples of this award).

    Established in 1951, the Sino-Soviet Friendship Medal was issued to Soviet military and civilian personnel helping the Chinese during and after the Korean War. The 1951 issue is the earliest type and perhaps the most sought after version of this award. Unlike the later types, the 1951 version was awarded almost exclusively to the military, including Soviet airmen and others directly involved in fighting.

    Item# 30969
