    Medal for Victory over Japan, Variation 1, #1076, with a document, awarded to Tuvaany Asarvaazh in 1946.

    Medal for Victory over Japan, Variation 1, #1076, with a document, awarded to Tuvaany Asarvaazh in 1946.

    The medal is in brass and enamels, very high quality characteristic of Soviet-made awards of the period. Medallion measures 42.2 mm tall (incl. eyelet), 39.5 mm wide. This is the first version of the medal featuring relatively concaved reverse. Note the serial number, extremely low even for the Variation 1.

    The medal is in excellent condition. The enamel appears perfect to the unaided eye, although the star has microscopic amount of flaking along the edges (this is barely noticeable even under 10x magnification and may be a manufacturing flaw rather than result of wear.) The white enamel on the Soembo emblem is perfect, and so is the enamel on the suspension device. Both sides of the medal and suspension retain nearly all of the original gold finish. The screw post is of full or near full length, approx. 12 mm, and includes original screw plate marked "Moscow Artists Cooperative".

    The award certificate was issued in 1946. Judging by his name, the recipient, Tuvaany Asarvaazh, was clearly an ethnic Mongolian and probably not a Soviet citizen. The certificate serial number is stamped in black ink and matches the serial number of the medal. The document is hand-signed by Hero of Mongolian People's Republic General Lkhagvasuren, one of the most prominent Mongolian military and political leaders. Lkhagvasuren served as deputy to Marshal Zhukov in the Battle of Khalkhin Gol; throughout WW2 he occupied positions of Deputy Commander of Mongolian People's Army and Chief of its Political Department. Later, he became a member of Politburo of the Mongolian Communist Party, rose to Minister of Defense, and even after his forced retirement in 1969 still attained important diplomatic posts.

    The document is in very good condition. It shows minor wear to the edges but still sound and presentable. The interior pages are perfectly clean and completely legible.
