Please put here the information you might have regarding those GREAT looking and rare medals (badges):

Gold Medal for All-Union Record Parachute Jump, in solid 14 K gold. Shows descending parachutist in the center and wreath at the bottom, writing along the edge on the reverse "Committee of Physical Culture and Sports at the Council of Ministers of the USSR" and, at the top, "1st Class" (highest level achievement).

Tal,

Shouldn't they be named on the back? I think I might have a scan somewhere. Will post it as soon as I find it.

The pictures are from Sotheby's catalog:

The engraving reads:

Gagarin Yu. A.
Flight Duration
108 minutes

A little more information:

Those medals were awarded in three classes.
The ribbons are -

RED for first place medals;
Blue for second place medals;
Green for third pkace medals.

First place is made of Gold (14 K), second is made of silver and third class is made of brass.

The diameter of all medals is 29 mm. All were minted at the MMD
(Moscow mint).

There are two variations of the inscription on the back.

1. " Union of sports societies and organizations of the USSR";
2. "Committee for physical culture and sports of the council of ministers of the USSR".

In 1969 the change of the name was made, so medals after 1969 have the second inscription.

Hello,
I possess three medals of the second class.
Unfortunately, I could get only the three pieces from one package. Altogether, 2 x 1 class and 4 x 2. class.
Is there more information to this medal?
How many types are there?

Vielen Dank

Alexander
