    50th Anniversary of the Soviet Union, Table Medal in sterling silver and enamel, with fitted case of issue, 1972.

    50th Anniversary of the Soviet Union, Table Medal in sterling silver and enamel, with fitted case of issue, 1972.

    Massive size, superb quality piece in Sterling silver and enamel. Measures 55.2 mm in diameter, 4.1 mm thick at the edge; weighs 92.5 g. Beautiful sculptured artwork is by S. Pamanskiy and V. Nikitin.

    The obverse shows portrait of Lenin in his trademark pose, with red Soviet flag underneath, and legend "50th Anniversary of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics". Reverse shows Soviet state emblem in high relief. The USSR emblem is surrounded by state seals of each of the republics, also executed in fine detail. Shows silver hallmark "925" and Leningrad mint mark "LMD" on the edge.

    Comes with original case in maroon plastic with nickel plated plaque showing embossed state emblem of the USSR. Lined in red velvet with fitted nest for the medal.

    The medal is in very fine to excellent condition. The sculptured details of the medal are perfect and crisp, show no significant wear. The enamel has only a few tiny scratches that are nearly unnoticeable to the naked eye but it is completely free of the usual flaking or chips, retains beautiful luster. The raised edge has two small dings, at approximately 3 and 8 o'clock positions, neither of them very noticeable or detractive.

    The plastic case is completely sound; the nickel plating on the plaque with the Soviet state emblem is bright and shows only minimal wear. The interior is perfectly clean. As is usually the case, the latch of the lid is won't lock when the medal is inside but the box will still close tightly once it's empty.

    The table medal was issued to a few selected VIPs on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1972.
