    Medal of Honored Worker of Textile and Light (Consumer Goods) Industry of RSFSR, circa 1981 - 1995 issue.

    Medal of Honored Worker of Textile and Light (Consumer Goods) Industry of RSFSR, circa 1981 - 1995 issue.

    In brass and lacquer, medallion measures 32.0 mm in width. Early style mint mark ММД (Moscow Mint) to the reverse of the suspension device.

    In excellent condition. The lacquer and details of the obverse are perfect, with just a couple of miniscule contact marks. The stippling on the reverse are pristine. There are some very mild blemishes on the reverse that are not detractive and actually add character.

    The Title of Honored Worker of Textile and Light Industry of RSFSR was established in 1981, relatively late compared with most other honorary titles. We do not have the date for the institution of the medal itself for the holders of the title, but it probably appeared within a year or two after the establishment of the title. Judging by the relative rarity of the medal, only a small number of them were issued until the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 and in the immediate few years afterwards, until the abolition of all titles of recognition of the communist era.

    /"Avers 8", p. 238, fig. 1161 (b); please note, the book description incorrectly states that the medallion is gilded/
