Medal of Honored Worker of Science and Culture of Komi Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, circa 1980s.
Brass gilt; medallion measures 28.6 mm in height incl. eyelet, 26.3 mm in width. Raised circular logo of the Moscow Mint to the reverse of the suspension device.
In very fine condition. The raised details are perfect; the medal is completely free of noticeable dings or edge bumps. There are some minor scratches and a blemish on the obverse as well as a smaller blemish on the reverse, but most of the gilt fnish is nicely preserved and bright. The ribbon is old, probably of the same age as the medal, but perfectly preserved.
Issued by the government of the Komi ASSR or Republic of Komi, an autonomous republic within RSFSR. Due to the relatively small population of the republic, medals of its honorary title holders are particularly rare.
