    Medal for Service in State Security ("KhAD Medal"), 1987- 1992.

    Medal for Service in State Security ("KhAD Medal"), 1987- 1992.

    Brass, lacquer, 32.0 mm wide. Features dark blue and red lacquer in the shield. Nice quality, typical of Soviet Mint manufacture.

    Excellent, near mint condition. The enamel is perfect. The gilt finish is nearly pristine, with just a couple of tiny spots and just miniscule amount of wear to the highest points of the national emblem and sword, no blemishes or significant wear. The ribbon is replaced with the generic ribbon of red, black and green stripes, as this medal was almost invariably worn by its recipients. The ribbon shows minimal wear only.

    This medal is often referred to as "Afghan KGB Medal". The inscription under the state emblem is actually "WAD", abbreviation for Ministry of State Security. The earlier acronym of this organization was KhAD, for Khadamat-e Ettel'at-e Dawlati or "State Information Services".
