"For bravery" document question

Recommended Posts

I got strange "For bravery" medal document and would like to get some extra information.

When this award was established? 18.10.1938???? Inside looks like some another award (stamp)? How its possible that it was awarded 17.10.1938??? Some kind a China campain? And i will be honest - I like to sell it, what would be aprox. price for this booklet?

The stamp looks like it's for a combat service/military merit medal. Медаль "За боевые заслуги" Any award given in the 30s will also have a serial number; none is shown here. As well, all of the booklets I've seen spell out the month, rather than use a number.

Don?t know if those are indictments, but I?d question the authenticity of the booklet.

Is there a printing location and date on the last page of the medal book?

It looks to me like there has been a serious erase-and-replace job done here. The massive scraped-away blue blob in the center?!

The name?

The award book printing details at the bottom of the last page?

This smells, and not nice . . . .

Preliminary advice: Run, run fast.
