Medal for the Construction of the Baikal-Amur Railroad, 1980s.
In brass; 32.0 mm wide. Variation with mint marked eyelet (it is clearly marked ЛМД ["LMD"] for Leningrad Mint.)
In excellent condition. The details are perfect and crisp on both sides. The medal is completely free of dings, scratches or other wear visible to the naked eye. There are some tiny spots here and there but no blemishes or significant oxidation. The original "gilt" mint luster (the shiny surface left after the medal was struck at the mint) is very strong and bright. Comes with very nicely preserved old ribbon.
