Soviet Ukraine State Prize Medal


Recommended Posts

As you can see this has not been numbered and is therefore an unissued example.

Also, I'm very impressed with the hanger. Looks like it's built like a brick battleship! :P Very solid construction.

Dan,

I find it strange that a prize of this caliber and time period - a State Prize from 1960's or later - would come with a soldered ring.

From experience, all various Republican or Union State Prizes I have seen and/or handled were mint made and had struck rings.

Hi Marc,

Actually no idea on this. It's the only state prize I've ever gotten... and won't have it in hand for a bit as it's coming from the Ukraine. I figure at least a couple of weeks or so. I'm still waiting on the doc sets from over there but hoping they'll be here in the next day or so.

I'll ask Roman if he knows. Perhaps it was a repair. Even though it's unissued it's certainly been some time since it was made. Quite possible it was damaged and the ring came off. I wouldn't think that would be that unusual.

Thanks! :beer:

Dan :cheers:
