The reverse shows the stamped letters ‘No’ followed by the engraved serial number ‘13981’. The minimum known serial number for this variation is 3 and the maximum 15052.
In an excellent, well above average condition with its details crisp. Even the higher laying parts like the lettering on its reverse and the raised hammer and sickle are with light wear only. The enamel is beautiful and without flaking or repairs and show minor contact marks only. The silver suspension is original to the medal as is the ‘MONDVOR’ screwplate. The medal shows a medium patina on both sides and its connection ring has been cut. The silver plated brass screw has not been shortened and there have been no repairs.
