Table Medal "70 Years Of Militia".

a friend of mine asked me to put this badge on the forum.
we'd sort of figure out that it's a 70years celebrationbadge, but we're not sure.
could some of you give more info about what it is, who gets it, and how you get it.
here're some photo's.

Re: Soviet badge

Hi,

Its a table medal for the 70th anniversary of the founding of the militia, the soviet civilian police force.

As to who would get it I have no idea.

Re: Soviet badge

Is there any evidence that this table medal was an award for anything, rather than just a commemorative piece?

Re: Soviet badge

I doubt that it is anything other than a celebration piece. If it was the appropriate text would probably be on the medal itself e.g. in recognition of selfless service, etc.

Re: Soviet badge

Simon is right about it being for the anniversary as a whole rather than a specific award. However, looking at the box it is in - if it is original to the table medal - then I would say this was a limited run given to higher-ranking officials in the MVD's USSR level militia.

Regardless of for whom it was made, it is one of the more unusual table medals of the militia/MVD/KGB I have seen (IMO) and certainly a keeper. (If your friend doesn't want it, PM or email me;)). There was a similar version made from gold-colored aluminum that I have around here somewhere and not nearly so nice.
