Jubilee Medal "Thirty Years Of Victory In The Great Patriotic War 1941-1945".

?

This looks like a document from the director of LMD, or is it just a "space filler" in the design of the document?

Jubilee Medal "Thirty Years Of Victory In The Great Patriotic War 1941-1945".

The commemorative medals 30 and 40 Years of Victory over Germany are quite common, except for the versions for foreigners. McDaniel states that they each have been awarded over 5,000 times and gives them both the R3 rating ("Rare piece, which is sometimes available, but may be hard to find"). In the Checklist by Dmitry ******, the 30-Years medal is rated R6 ("very difficult to obtain") and the 40-Years rated R5 ("extremely rare and seldom available"). I believe that ****** is correct, especially as far as the 30-Years medal is concerned.

I have seen a 30-Years medal for the first time recently as part of a group belonging to a Bulgarian MVD colonel. I had always been wondering which foreigners had been honored with these special issues.

I got this as part of a screwup from eBay. It's a mint condition and presumabley brand new booklet for the 30 year medal. It does not have the Umalatova stamp that I see so often. I assume it's a post communism Soviet party issue document. Am I right?
I've attached an image just in case it might help clarify questions others might have.

Not from '75 it is, it's too "minty". Is it?

Re: Anniversary Medal but what Variation??

Brendan,

That is the standard "War Participant" version that has lost its plating over the years. Nothing strange here.

Re: Jubilee Medal "Thirty Years Of Victory In The Great Patriotic War 1941-1945".

Here is a "Participant" example awarded to Konstantin Isa(a)kovich Tabatadze on 21st September 1978 by Tbilisi.

A little more digging shows him receiving an OPW1'85 and being born in Harachauli, Georgia in 1902.
