Medal "For Distinction In Military Service".

Just purchased these medals. Will post the reverse when I receive them.

Received the medals. I'm posting the obverse and reverse. The 3rd class has a different ring than the 1st and 2nd class.

Re: Medal "For Distinction In Military Service".

The Medals "For Distinction In Military Service" (Медали «За Отличие В Военной Службе») were founded on 27th March 1995 by ministerial decree #123.

Here is the 1st Class Type 1.

As with all Ministerial and some Federal awards of the Russian Federation the Medals are made by different mints under different contracts and this is represented by a great deal of variation in mint marks and quality.

Here is a Type 1 Variation 1 1st Class. A top quality Saint Petersburg Mint piece as fresh today as when it was struck over 21 years ago.
