Soviet Medal for the Defense of the Polar Region ‘Voenkomat’



Made of gilded brass. Measures 32.13 mm in width, 36.92 mm in height including the eyelet and it weighs 16.2 gram without its suspension. This ‘Voekomat’ has a Leningrad Mint mark ‘LMD’ stamped on the reverse of the eyelet.


The medal is in excellent with perfect details and light overall wear only. Much of the gold plating is still present and the steel suspension is time period to the medal.


These ‘Voenkomat’ medals are 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.
