    Medal for the Defense of Moscow, Variation 1, 1940s.

    Medal for the Defense of Moscow, Variation 1, 1940s.

    In brass; 32.1 mm wide. In outstanding, excellent condition. Both sides are practically free of noticeable wear of any kind beside some miniscule dings to the edge. The raised details are perfect and exceptionally crisp. The original "gilt" (which is really a result of technological process at the mint which created a shiny surface after the strike of the press) is extremely well-preserved on the obverse with just mild toning to the highest points. The reverse has a little bit more age toning but no blemishes, and its "gilt" is beautifully preserved, especially in recessed areas around the lettering and hammer & sickle emblem.

    Comes on original suspension device, a WW2 two-layer model in steel with self-locking pin. The ribbon is old but immaculately clean. The connecting link is original and has not been cut.

    This is one of the best examples of the Defense of Moscow medal we have seen in years - almost impossible to upgrade for condition.
