Medal for the Construction of the Baikal-Amur Railroad, 1980s.
In brass; 32.0 mm wide. Variation with mint marked eyelet (it is clearly marked ЛМД ["LMD"] for Leningrad Mint.) In
excellent condition. There is no significant wear of any kind; the details are perfect and crisp on both sides. On the obverse, there are a couple of tiny spots, but the medal is completely free of blemishes or significant oxidation. The original "gilt" mint luster (the shiny surface left after the medal was struck at the mint) is very strong and bright. Comes with very nicely preserved old ribbon.
