Medal of Honored Developer of Science and Technology of RSFSR, 1985 - 1995 issue.
German silver, lacquer, 28.0 mm wide. Shows late type, circular logo of the Moscow Mint on the reverse of the suspension. In outstanding, excellent condition. The lacquer finish on the obvers is practically pristine, with only minimal traces of wear.
Literally translated as "Honored Advancer of Science and Technology", this title was mostly an award for applied, technology-oriented research as opposed to the "Advancer of Science and Technology" title for purely scientific studies. Although the title existed since the 30s, the medal only appeared in 1985, very close to the end of the Soviet era. The number of issues is currently unknown, but it must be very small judging by how infrequently this medal appears on the market.
