    Medal for Valor, Type 1 Variation 2, #38968, circa early to mid-1942.

    Medal for Valor, Type 1 Variation 2, #38968, circa early to mid-1942.

    Silver, enamels; medallion measures 37.1 mm wide; averages 2.8 mm thick on the edge. The medallion of this variation is identical to Variation 1, with fine quality enamel in the letters and hand-engraved serial number. Currently known serial number range for this version of the Medal for Valor is just 28910 through 40254 (according to Mondvor.narod.ru), meaning that far fewer of them were produced than even of the Variation 1.

    In very fine to excellent overall condition. The medallion shows minimal wear to the high points; most details are still nicely defined. The enamel in the letters is perfect. The raised edge on the obverse is free of noticeable knocks or excessive wear. There is attractive dark patina to silver on both sides. The medal comes on original Type 1 suspension. The suspension is complete with all of its original parts still present including the rectangular back plate, hexagon retaining nut, and mint marked screw plate.

    The ribbon is not original to the medal but is clearly very old, probably of the period. Although soiled, the ribbon is largely intact and sound, and adds great deal of character to the medal. The screw post is full length (it measures 7 mm from the back plate; please note however that the ribbon is much thicker than usual, and the back plate therefore sits rather far from the base of the screw.) The connecting link is a replacement.
