    Medal for the Defense of Kiev, 1960s-70s.

    Medal for the Defense of Kiev, 1960s-70s.

    In brass, 32.0 mm wide. In very fine to excellent condition. The medal is free of wear noticeable to the naked eye; its raised details are perfect and crisp. The brass has acquired attractive patina with some occasional small spots of darker oxidation, not too detractive. The original "gilt" finish (mint luster) is still clearly visible in recessed areas, especially on the obverse. Comes on original aluminum suspension with nicely preserved old ribbon.

    Established in 1961, 20 years after the battle, this is the last of the Soviet WW2 campaign medals. Awarded to the survivors of the battle for Kiev which was catastrophic for the Red Army (General Kriponos, commander of the Southwestern Front which defended the city, was killed in the cauldron along with most of his staff.)
