Made of gilded brass. It measures 32.13 mm in width and 37.06 mm in height, including the eyelet. It weighs 16.3 gram. 

 

This relatively early ‘voenkomat’ medal is in excellent condition with all details present and most gold plating still present. even the higher laying parts of the obverse of the medal show little wear. The double layer steel suspension is time period to the medal.

 

 

About the Voenkomat medals:

Voenkomat medals are post-war issued medals 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.
