    Medal for Irreproachable Service in MOOP of Ukraine, 1st class (20 Years), 1962-68 issue.

    Medal for Irreproachable Service in MOOP of Ukraine, 1st class (20 Years), 1962-68 issue.

    Brass, silver plating, enamel; 31.8 mm wide. Weighs 15.7 g not including the suspension. Excellent condition. The enamel is perfect. There is attractive patina to the silver finish which adds character. The connecting link is original and hasn't been cut.

    MOOP stands for Ministry of Protecting the Public Order, a temporary substitute for MVD during the 60s. This particular variation of the MOOP medal was issued by the Ukrainian MOOP. Curiously only in the Ukraine MOOP medals did not have a designation for the republic, which had led many (including us) to mistakenly believe that these were medals of the "all- Union" MOOP of 1966-68 period. In 1968, the law enforcement ministry of the Soviet Union re-acquired its old name MVD, and the MOOP medals were not issued after that.
