    Two oversized presentation medals to Soviet Vice Admiral Boris Ivanovich Gromov, one cased, the other inscribed.

    Two oversized presentation medals to Soviet Vice Admiral Boris Ivanovich Gromov, one cased, the other inscribed. Interesting and attractive presentation pieces.

    The first medal was presented on the occasion of Gromov's 50th birthday by VNII (All Union Scientific Research Institute) "ALTAIR" military research bureau. The Admiral was likely involved in R&D at that time. The medallion shows a cruiser on the obverse, and a very nice rendition of the Kremlin Clock Tower on the reverse. The suspension device is metal and has a pin back intended for display on a flag or banner. It is approximately 3" in diameter and nearly 1/4" thick.

    The second medal is about 4.75" in diameter and is made of solid brass. The obverse is inscribed to Vice-Admiral Gromov Boris Ivanovitch 1990 and the numerals "60" for his age. On the reverse, an engraving of a Soviet nuclear submarine and a poem which roughly translates -- "This medal presented to one who carried the cross of the defender of the nation, in a difficult field, and was a sheild for the beloved motherland." This piece also has a suspension device, with a hook on the reverse for attaching to a flag or banner.

    Condition is excellent. Large "60" medal shows tarnish to brass surface, otherwise little wear. The "50" piece is in excellent condition with some very minor scratches to the red tint, and some rust to the pin device. The foam padding to its presentation case has deteriorated. One of a kind pieces.
