    Khalkin Gol Medal, Variation 2, Sub-variation 1, 1946 manufacture.

    Khalkin Gol Medal, Variation 2, Sub-variation 1, 1946 manufacture.

    Silver-plated brass, enamels. The height is 38.3 mm measured from the bottom to the top of the 12 o'clock point of the banner (not including the flagpole finial), measures 37.4 mm in width. This is Sub-variation 1, featuring less pronounced indentations on the ornamental edge and flat reverse. Fine quality of this badge is very characteristic of the Soviet Mint manufacture. According to the Urnukh's catalog, a total of 5504 of the Variation 2 badges of both sub-variations were produced by the Soviet Mint.

    In excellent, near mint condition. The enamels are pristine everywhere, practically free of even microscopic flaws (except for a couple of minuscule contact marks that are almost impossible to find even under 10x magnification.) The gold plating on the edge is intact and bright. The silver plating on the cavalryman and horse shows no detectable wear even on the high points, an extremely unusual case. The reverse is likewise pristine and shows beautiful toning. The screw post is full length, over 15 mm. Original mint marked screw plate is included (note that the screw plate is made of silver-plated brass but otherwise is of the same design as was used on the Hero Stars). All-in-all, this is a superb example, literally impossible to upgrade.

    Awarded for participation in the 1939 battle against the Japanese Kwantung Army in Manchuria, this badge was later upgraded in rank to be considered a medal. The flat back variation was issued mostly to Mongolian troops and also to some of the Soviets who had not received the badge earlier. According to the research by Khuujii, the date of manufacture for all Variation 2 badges is 1946 and only 5504 in total were produced.

    /Khuujii Urnukh, "The Orders and Medals of the Mongolian People's Republic", pp. 180, 181/.
