In excellent condition. The lacquer and details of the obverse are perfect, with just a couple of miniscule contact marks. The stippling on the reverse are pristine. There are some very mild blemishes on the reverse that are not detractive and actually add character.

The Title of Honored Worker of Textile and Light Industry of RSFSR was established in 1981, relatively late compared with most other honorary titles. We do not have the date for the institution of the medal itself for the holders of the title, but it probably appeared within a year or two after the establishment of the title. Judging by the relative rarity of the medal, only a small number of them were issued until the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 and in the immediate few years afterwards, until the abolition of all titles of recognition of the communist era.
