In silver and enamels; measures 46.2 mm tall x 48.5 mm wide; weighs 31.4 g without the screw plate.

Relatively scarce variation manufactured at the Moscow Platinpribor Factory (MZPP). This specimen is from the second of the two MZPP serial number ranges, 2050000 through 2300000, manufactured in 1945. Features characteristically sloppy serial number engraving and very small font of the "Monetnyi Dvor" mint mark.

This relatively scarce variation was manufactured at the Moscow Platinpribor Factory (MZPP); the order is from the second MZPP series which was manufactured in 1945 and has the serial number range from 2050000 - 2300000. It features characteristically sloppy serial number engraving and very small font of the "Monetnyi Dvor" mint mark. The "extension" of the soldier's bayonet in the center medallion "punctures" the inner ring of the medallion and reaches to the letter "O" of the last word of the slogan.

This is a particularly interesting specimen with a factory flaw, a very poorly struck mint mark. Note especially the second word "Dvor": only the first of its letters is clearly visible while the third letter "o" is completely missing. Such factory errors are very uncommon, although several other specimens from the same MZPP series with either completely missing or partly struck mint mark have been observed.

The order is in excellent condition. The enamel shows beautiful luster and appears practically perfect to the unaided eye. It is completely free of flaking or rubbing and has only a few tiny contact marks that are almost unnoticeable without magnification. The details of the center medallion are extremely well-preserved and crisp. There is attractive toning to silver on both sides. The screw post is full length, over 11 mm, and includes original WW2 era screw plate.
