    Document for a Medal for the Defense of Moscow, awarded on 1 October 1945 to Private Ivan Golovin.

    Document for a Medal for the Defense of Moscow, awarded on 1 October 1945 to Private Ivan Golovin.

    The document is of the early type, printed on thinner and somewhat glossier paper than the most other campaign medal certificate (same type of paper was also used for some of the Defense of Polar Region Medal documents). Note a very low serial number of the certificate printed under the image of the medal: Series B (Cyrillic "V"), #000499.

    This Moscow Medal document is a scarce version having typographically printed text at the bottom for the position of the Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Soviet (Council) of Workers Deputies of the city of Moscow and the Secretary of the committee. These entries are absent in vast majority of Moscow Medal certificates because they were designed to be issued by military units rather than the city government. A facsimile signature of both officials appears on the bottom right.

    Interestingly, although the document is city council issue, the ink stamp is of a military unit - Command of the 260th Rifle Division - which seems to indicate that Private Golovin was still on active duty in the unit at the time.

    Condition is very good overall. Both the cover and internal pages are very clean, completely free of stains, soiling or fingerprints. There are separations along the spine, common to the documents of this type due to more brittle paper. The pages however are holding together well and for the time being, do not require a backing tape repair.
