Gents,

I don't see any problems with the first document.

Matteti,

Thank you for the scans, I agree with Alexei. What really threw me off was the shade of the paper in your first scan.

It is fortunately not so common, but I've seen a few times this crude job on medals, especially campaign medals.

Obviously a crude repair to hang the medal after the ring broke off. I have seen some like this too on other campaign medals.

Don't you find the details to be very blurry on the medal surface? Mostly the obverse. To my not-expert opinion , it looks like a copy.

I think you could put that down to wear. I can't imagine a forger going to the extra trouble of breaking the ring and drilling a hole...if anything its value may go down..

Just my few pence worth :-)

Hello again,
I've been perusing my documents of late and found a Leningrad document with a fully printed "1944" date on it. I've seen them with "1943", "194_" and "19__" but not this one. Mondvor doesn't show an example either.

After doing a google search I *did* find an image of a "1944" document on a rather major dealer's website. Not that that means a great deal.
But I was kind of hoping I had a one-in-a-million, unobserved variant that would have been worth a bazillion dollars. Oh well....:angerr
Now at least I can frame this without having to worry too much.

Would one of you Soviet Union historians share some insight on the Soviet Seal with 11 ribbons. When did the last 4 or so republics join the union?

LRE

I answered my own question about the number of ribbons. Info found at:

It didn't come out very shiny, so you will have to trust me on that :)
