    Table Medal in Commemoration of the Centenary of Birth of Feliks Dzerzhinsky, 1977.

    Table Medal in Commemoration of the Centenary of Birth of Feliks Dzerzhinsky, 1977.

    Bronze, measures 85.0 mm in diameter (much larger than most other Soviet table medals.) Obverse features Dzerzhinsky's portrai, dates 1877-1977 and inscription "100th Years Since the Birth of Feliks Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky" On the reverse is the KGB emblem of shield and sword surrounded by oak leaves and a famous Dzerzhinsky's quote "Only a person with cold head, hot heart and clean hands can be a Chekist." There is a logo of Leningrad Mint to the right of the KGB emblem.

    Designed by the artists Belokurov and Filippov, this medal struck in 1983 had the total circulation of 2015, a pretty small number by the Soviet standards. It was apparently awarded exclusively to VIPs in the Soviet KGB and police. The medal is in excellent condition. There are a few tiny contact marks mostly to the high portions of the bas-relief portrait, but they are almost unnoticeable; the sculptured details of the portrait as well as other raised artwork are perfect and crisp. There are no bumps, dents or other significant wear of any kind. Very attractive even toning to the bronze throughout, no spotting or blemishes.

    /See "Commemorative [Table] Medals of the Soviet Period, 1919-1991", fig. 1066/.

    Please note, penny in our photo is for size reference.
