Soviet Medal for the 20th Anniversary of the RKKA. 1938

 

 

This XX year RKKA medal is made of solid silver and enamels. Measures 32.21 mm in diameter, 2.85 mm in thickness at the very edge of the medal and 35.74 mm in height (including the eyelet). It weighs 23.1 gram. 

 

This original 20th Anniversary of the RKKA medal is in excellent, well above average condition with all details present. Even the higher laying parts on its reverse show little wear. The soldier’s eyes, fingers and rifle for example, are all visible. The enamel shows some minor superficial dings and scratches but none penetrating the silver and barely visible with the naked eye. Its double layer steel suspension is time period to the medal.

 

A superb piece. Scarce as such!
