Hi all,

Bought this medal a long time ago and was just wondering if anyone could tell me if it is a fake or not

Many thanks

I'm away from home but I have a good one.  If this topic is still open next weekend I'll post it for comparison.  I'm skeptical about this one but no one else has responded.

I do not think this medal is original. The posted photos are small, unfortunately, a large scan of the coin would have been preferred rather than seeing the suspension (which is modern and not official, btw). Suspension are often replaced for various reasons and do not contribute to the assessment of authenticity of the medal (they do contribute to the final price during negotiation, of course). 

My impression is that this medal is a cast copy, and the suspension ring is badly soldered. Again I see the worn out "H" (N) in the center of the reverse, which is a common detail among a large family of fake soviet medals.
