    Medal of a Participant of the Spanish Civil War of 1936- 1939, issued in 1986 in Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the War.

    Medal of a Participant of the Spanish Civil War of 1936- 1939, issued in 1986 in Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the War.

    Brass, "cold" enamels, lacquer. The medallion measures 36.5 mm tall (incl. eyelet), 31.9 mm wide. The reverse of the medallion has raised inscription "To a Participant of the National Revolutionary War in Spain, 1936-1939, SKVV (Soviet War Veterans Committee)". There is a maker mark "C" on the reverse of the suspension.

    This award was modeled from the similar SKVV medal established in 1966. Unlike the previous issue, it is more substantially made. Curiously, this medal albeit scarce, appears somewhat more frequently than its 1960s counterpart. One possible explanation may be in the relative thaw in international relationships in the mid-80s, prior to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. We can only guess at this point, but a larger number of these medals may have been made because more International Brigades volunteers from the western countries were expected to be eligible for it. In any event, this is a very interesting and uncommon veteran's award!
