Medal of Honored Employee of Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic, circa 1970s-80s issue.
In brass gilt and enamels; medallion is 25.9 mm wide. The reverse of the suspension has early style mint mark "MMD" of the Moscow Mint. Excellent condition.
This "unified" medal was reportedly awarded to holders of most honorary titles of Soviet Moldavia such as Honored Medical Doctor, Teacher, Inventor etc. - as opposed to the medals of People's titles such as People's Writer who had individual, title specific awards.
