Medal for Distinction in Guarding the State Border of the USSR


Solid silver piece with a ‘flat’ eyelet. The earliest and most rare variation of this medal



Made of solid silver. It measures 32.16 mm in width and 3.01 mm in thickness at the very edge of the medal. The height of the medal is 37.38 mm including its eyelet and it weighs 21.1 gram without its suspension.


The medal is in excellent condition with crisp details. It shows light wear only and even the details of the higher laying parts are perfectly visible. Both sides show an appealing dark patina with beautiful ‘rainbow-like’ toning. Its connection ring has not been cut and the medal comes with its time period brass suspension and old ribbon.


Scarce piece and hard to upgrade


Awarded to K.G.B. Border Troops personnel for military or other actions displaying excellence in guarding the Soviet borders.
