1968 Cased Hungarian "Furious" Lenin Bronze Table Medal.
The obverse bears a likeness of Lenin based on newsreel footage of him aggressively making a point during a public speech. (It is impossible to guess whether the Hungarian artist was being ironic in choosing to show Lenin with such an unpleasant expression on his face. Who knows? Some Hungarian representations of Lenin will tend to scowl while some of their Stalin images will radiate warmth and bonhomie [see Wall Plaque with Stalin's bas-relief]).
An unusual medal, apparently produced by one of the component sections of the Hungarian Communist Party to commemorate a special event.
