Soviet Medal for the Defense of Odessa

 

Variation 2 ‘Voenkomat’

 

 

Made of gilded brass. It measures 32.16 mm in width, 37.03 mm in height including the eyelet and weighs 15.9 gram without its suspension. 

 

This medal for the Defense of Odessa is in mint condition with perfect details and all gold plating still present. Even the higher laying parts of the medal on both sides show virtually no wear. It comes with its time period suspension and its connection ring has not been cut.

 

This medal is one of the post-war issues that 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.

 

Scarce and impossible to upgrade!
