re: #33. Medal "40 Years of the PRL.

Here is a document (removed from the plastic sleeve) to Artur Alojzego Wiczok.

This Medal was awarded over 4 million times and is extremely commonplace. This document with the Medal (and red plastic sleeve) was bought and delivered for under $2.

Hi Tomahawk,
Your example is on the ribbon either for the Socialist Youth Association Decoration of Janek Krasicki or the Polish-Soviet Friendship Society Meritorious Member Decoration.

Regards Eddie

Hi Taz!
Thank you for the information! I knew that ribbon, but until I went to my collection, I didn´t realize that is was the Janek Krasicki medal.
I didn´t know that this could be done, it was normal this thing?
Thanks!!
