Medal of Honored School Teacher of RSFSR, 1975 - 1995.
Medallion is silver-plated brass, 26.0 mm wide, riveted two- piece construction, weighs 9.1 g not including the suspension and connecting link; overall weight with suspension is 14.2 g. Raised mint logo "LMD" to the reverse of the medallion. Excellent condition. The silver finish on the obverse is unblemished and bright. Attractive dark patina to the reverse. The perfectly preserved ribbon is old, likely original to the medal.
Established in 1940, the title of Honored School Teacher was among the earliest Soviet titles of distinction. The medal was instituted much later, in 1975, but still earlier than vast majority of similar medals for RSFSR "honored" and "people's" titles.
