C 27 -- Khalkin Gol, 1039-2004

Pretty uncommon, can't have been many recipients?

And the document interior spread. Yes, blue-coloured plastic. Not in great shape!

C 06 -- Choibalsan's Best Shooter

These have been well discussed on and off in isolated threads. This is the Type 1 badge (angled rifle);I don't have a Type 2 (horizontal rifle) yet.

There is variability in manufacturing over time, mainly reduction in weight. I have an older one (shown here) at 15.7 g and a leter lightweight (can we use that word in connection with Choibalsan?) at 14.15 g.

C 01 -- Army Pin

The grandfather of them all, the first pin for the Mongolian Army, ca. 1921. This one, though in generally good condition, has been altered for sewing directly onto the uniform.
