Soviet Maternity Medal 2nd class
This piece is literally a textbook example for it is published in ‘Soviet Orders and Medals’ by Andrew Reznik (page 145)
This Soviet Maternity Medal 2nd class is made out of gold plated brass and enamels. It measures 29.13 mm in diameter, 34.06 mm in height including the eyelet and weighs 13.7 gram without its suspension.
The medal is in mint condition with all details crisp and problem free enamels. All gold plating on both the suspension and the medal itself is still present.
Impossible to upgrade!
The Soviet Maternity medal 2nd class was awarded to all mothers raising 5 children. It was awarded at the first birthday of the last child, provided that five other children stayed alive. Children who had died under ‘respectful’ circumstances were also counted.
