Finally, a small Belarus partisan badge that was apparently given to those "former-partisans" in the 1980s when issued the previous booklets and when they were recognized officially as partisans and participants of the GPW for privileges purposes... But the badge doesn't belong to any of those booklet (in the sense of a documented badge), it's just that they were usually giving badge as well as a booklet to those people.

Hello gentlemen,

I have this medal in my collection, but I fear that it is a fake Ukrainian. Opinions?

Marse, I would like to see opinions on your Partisan as well. I hope that someone will revive this thread one day... ;)

Fantastic thread on a very interesting and rare subject.

May I revive and request some expertise? Looking for some qualified competence and advice on any telltale marks or lookouts to distinguish a fake from a true, era example?

Any longtime Soviet or Russian authorities out there to give us additional and blanket perspective?

Thanks,

M.
