Very nice, Nick, thank you for sharing.

May I be cheeky and ask if you'd permit me to use these images (with acknowledgement, of course) on my website?

The versions of Commemorative Medals in Gold-bronze gilted.I do not exactly know for whom they were issued.Probably for some prominent persons.I have not met anybody who has them.Or an official issue?

The second medal is the 50th Anniversary of the Victory over Fascism.The diameter 3cm.

A few days ago I was bidding this rare medal,but when I got the information,my friend was taking part in auction,I stopped biding.

The next version of the Commemorative Medal of the 50th Anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising.
