Re: Watermarks in booklet for a Medal for Veteran of Labor

Re: Watermarks in booklet for a Medal for Veteran of Labor

Hi Eric,
Yes, that is exactly the same "CCCP" and symbol as in your Order Book. And now that I see your Military ticket, I remember having seen these stars as well. I guess I just didn't pay enough attention to the documents when I had them in my hands. Now, I am stick with digital images of my collection and I don't see these details.

Thanks for posting these photos.

Re: Watermarks in booklet for a Medal for Veteran of Labor

I just noticed that the watermark in my first image is reversed in the second image.
I wonder if that means anything.

Sometimes, if you can make a photocopy of just one page, the watermarks show up quite clearly on the copy - but you can't just open the book; like Eric's photos, light has to be able to get through to the other side.

Eric, since watermarks by their nature can only go one way through the paper, letters will be reversed if viewed from the other side of a page.:)

Re: Medal "Veteran Of Labour".

Here is a nicely worn example. The recipient has put this Medal (which may have been their only award) on a screwback single suspension which is unusual but there is far less chance of it running away.

Re: Medal "Veteran Of Labour".

Here is a 25th November 1982 awarded example from Chernigov Oblast.

This is a lucky example as some information has been found on the recipient on "the site". It would seem that the native Ukrainian recipient received this when he was 60. Other than receiving an OPW1'85 he also received a Medal "For Combat Merits".

Sergeant Petr Fomich Tsapok was a Section Commander 3rd Battalion 215th Army Reserve Rifle Regiment of the 61st Army. Serving in the Army from 1941, Party Member from 1943 serving on the Brjansk and Belorussian Fronts from July 1943. Wounded August 1943.

"Active participant in the battle for the liberation of the town of Mtsensk (Orel Oblast), Wounded.
For his short stay in the battalion proved himself an energetic, initiative, well prepared commander. Copes with the responsibilities preparing competent replenishment of the Army. As a Komsomol Organiser of the Komsomol Organisation successfully educates his personnel in the spirit of devotion to the nation."

Re: Medal "Veteran Of Labour".

Here is a 12th June 1978 award to Mihail Moshkovich Snitkovskij by Sverdlovsk Oblast. A 1918 Kopajgorod native that moved east to the Urals at some point - during the move of the labour front?

Re: Medal "Veteran Of Labour".

Two Veteran of Labor Medal documents, ostensibly to a husband and wife, illustrating two of the many varieties of Order Books for this medal, one larger with a textured cover, the other, and later edition, with a smaller smooth cover. Note also the differences in the shading/color of the covers.

- Document for the Medal for Veteran of Labor (smaller, smooth cover variation) awarded to Victoria Ivanova Pisarevskaya on January 15th, 1990 by the Kharkov Regional Council of People's Deputies of The UkSSR.

- Document for the Medal for Veteran of Labor awarded to Nikolai Fedorovich Pisarevskiy on November 21st, 1983 by the Kharkov Regional Council of People's Deputies of The UkSSR.
