    Odessa Medal

    Voenkomat is an abbreviation (Военкомат) from the Russian "Военный комиссариат" or Military Commissariat, similar, in some respects I imagine, to U. S. Draft Boards. It refers to medals issued by the various city and regional military commissariats located throughout the former Soviet Union in the period after the war. They were usually issued/awarded many years later so the medals appear newer, unworn, mint. Here, for example, is a Voenkomat Defense of Stalingrad Medal. I have Voenkomat issued documents some as late as 1990. Their relative value is less because they are newer and not period issued. I have heard them referred to as "catch-up" awards, much like the Red Stars, Bravery Medals, Orders of Glory, and so on issued in the 1970's &1980's for war wounds.
