Soviet Medal for Bravery #2422803
Scarce variation with its eyelet screwed into the medal
Made of solid silver. it measures 37.54 mm in diameter and 42.50 mm in height (including the eyelet) and weighs 27.6 gram without its suspension. Unlike most Bravery Medals, the eyelet of this medal has been screwed into the medal and not just soldered on top of it. The known ranges for this sub-variation are 1926271-1956637, 2407144-2539625 and 3010239-3212405. Please note that even though all screw-in variations fall in these ranges, most of the medals in these ranges have their eyelet attached the regular way.
The medal is in a worn but decent condition with several small contact marks on both sides. Almost all of the red lacquer is lost but its details are mostly visible. The reverse shows a stain which appears to be some residue of a (price) sticker. Its connection ring has not been cut and the double layer steel suspension is time period to the medal as is its ribbon.
We included some examples of similar variation medals which show how the eyelet was attached to this medal (last 5 pictures)
