Soviet Medal for the Defense of Moscow 

 

Variation 2 (Voenkomat)

 

 

Made of gold plated brass. Measures 32.13 mm in width, 37.06 mm in height including its eyelet and weighs 15.6 gram without its suspension.

 

This medal is in great condition with perfect details and full gold plating. There are few traces of wear and the aluminium suspension and ribbon are time period tot he medal. Its connection ring has not been cut.

 

These post-war issues 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.
