Timo,

Can't see anything obviously wrong with it.

All the best

Paul

Thank you so much! I got thumbs up from another forum as well.

Also just received this....

The citation's pretty grisly.

And while I'm not an expert at all the medal looks good to me.  Original ribbon and suspension?  That would be a big bonus.

Thanks Eric. Yes, looks like the medals to boarder guard regiments are not so comkon. Also poor guy looks like lost his leg and medal for that..... a small price in this sence.

I didn' realised that they used this kind of double ring suspension system?

 

Now, whole collection that is up on emedals has same ring systems so I recon it's done by collection owner.

I have few imperial Russian "kolodas" left so I used this one instead. Should I put the rings back?

Without any clearer images I'd leave things as-is.  Having said that I put my few on Soviet suspensions with replacement ribbons as they all came without either.
