Medal for the Defense of Sevastopol
‘Voenkomat’ Variation



Made of gilded brass. It measures 32.09 mm in width, 37.04 mm in height including the eyelet and it weighs 16.0 grams without its suspension. 


In near mint condition with perfect details and all gold plating still present. Even the higher laying parts of the medal on both sides show very light wear only. The aluminium suspension is time period to the medal and its connection ring has not been cut.


This medal is one of the post-war issues that were awarded by a Voenkomat (Military Commissariat) at the veteran’s place of residence. The reasons for the late issue could vary but in most instances, the Voenkomat medals were “catch-up” awards to those who had taken part in the battle and then somehow overlooked by the awarding authorities during WW2 and in the immediate post-war years.


The Medal “For the Defense of Sevastopol” was awarded to all participants in the defense of Sevastopol. Both to soldiers and civilians, who took part in the defense of Sevastopol during its siege by German forces.
