    Medal "From the Grateful Afghan People".

    Medal "From the Grateful Afghan People".

    Brass, enamels; medallion measures 32 mm in diameter. Medallion obverse shows USSR and Afghan flags; the reverse bears inscription "From the Grateful Afghan People" in Russian and Dari.

    In very fine to excellent condition. Unlike many unissued examples of the "Grateful Afghan People" medal, this piece shows genuine use and light wear. There are some minor blemishes to the gilt finish and light scratches and scuffs to enamel on the flags, but no significant damage of any kind. The details are perfect. The old ribbon is faded and shows wear but is still sound and clean. Comes with original unmarked screw plate which is correct for this medal.

    This medal was instituted by the Communist government of Afghanistan and like nearly all other Afghan awards of communist era, manufactured by the Soviet mint. It was issued to all Soviet servicemen who served in Afghanistan.
