Medal "For Participation In The Anti-Fascist Struggle".

The Medal "For Participation In The Anti-Fascist Struggle" (За Участие В Антифашистката Борба) was most likely founded in Q1 of 1950 although many sources have very confused "information" on this award suggesting the award in from 1948 and was renamed etc. As the original document states "1950" in print I would take that as a 1950 founding. I have also never seen it being referred to as anything other than Medal "For Participation In The Anti-Fascist Struggle".

The earliest dated document in the collection is 3rd March 1950 and the latest is a trio from 3rd January 1957. The numbers would also suggest at least 27,600 awardings.

Here is the early "thin" variation (30.6mm by 3.5mm).

Here is an early case and a Type 1 9th March 1950 dated document for Medal #5763 to Stojne Stanoev Gergov. The Type 2 Document doesn't have the "0" of 1950.
