    Khalq Medal, circa 1978-79.

    Khalq Medal, circa 1978-79.

    In brass, 32.1 mm wide. Shows Afghan State Emblem of 1978- 1980 type.

    In excellent condition. The raised details are perfect and crisp. The gilt finish is very nicely preserved and bright on both sides of the medal having only some tiny spots on the obverse and a couple of mild blemishes on the reverse none of which are really detractive. Comes with a hard to find, well-preserved, original ribbon.

    The Khalq or "People's Party" was the extremist left wing of the PDPA (Peoples Democratic Party of Afghanistan). In 1978 it seized power from the more moderate wing "Parchan" effectively installing communist dictatorship. This led to widespread mayhem and rebellion, and to eventual Soviet intervention of December 1979 which ended the Khalq rule. The Khalq Medal therefore had a very short lifespan, and originals are very uncommon - especially is premium condition like our example.
