    Medal for Protecting the Borders, 1980s.

    Medal for Protecting the Borders, 1980s.

    In brass, 32.1 mm wide. Shows an Afghan soldier near a border marker with mountains on the background. Dari writing on the reverse.

    In outstanding, excellent condition. The gilt finish is exceptionally well preserved and bright, especially on the obverse. There are some tiny scuff marks, mostly to the reverse, but they are not really detractive. Includes Soviet style suspension device with scarce original ribbon. This example is among the best we have handled - most others show much more wear.

    Established in 1980, this medal like most other Afghanistan awards of the communist period was manufactured in the Soviet Union. It was awarded by the puppet government of Afghanistan mostly to Afghan border guard troops but also to some Soviet soldiers.
