    Honorary Medal for Combat, Type 1, Variation 1, #567, circa 1944-1944.

    Honorary Medal for Combat, Type 1, Variation 1, #567, circa 1944-1944.

    Silver, enamels; medallion measures 36.0 mm in width, averages 2.5 mm thick at the edge; weighs 25.5 g not including the suspension and connecting link. This is the earliest version of the medal featuring engraved number sign "N" before the serial number. Approximately 2000 were issued starting in 1941 and until 1947 when it was replaced by Variation 2.

    In excellent condition. The red enamel shows nice luster and has only microscopic contact marks and surface flakes that are completely unnoticeable to the naked eye, no significant wear. The center medallion has a few light miniscule dings but the details of the horseman are exceptionally well preserved and crisp. The reverse is nearly pristine.

    The medal comes on original suspension device, complete with the triangular back plate, retaining nut and original Soviet screw plate maker marked "Monetnyi Dvor". The screw post is full length, approx. 13.5 mm. The original silk ribbon is worn and partly tattered at the top but is still holding well. The connecting link appears to be original and its ends are still joined with solder. Overall, an extremely attractive WW2 example of the Mongolian Combat Medal (aka Medal for Bravery).

    /Khuujii Urnukh, The Orders and Medals of the Mongolian People's Republic, pp. 148, 149/.
