FR Yugoslavia - Medal for merit in the fields of defense and security

Recommended Posts

This long named decoration was introduced in 1998. It had only one grade and it was awarded for commitment in carrying out duties in the fields of defense and security.

Ribbon looks the same as the ribbon for the Medal for military merit of the previous (communist) Yugoslavia, except it's pentagonal. And the box is quite nice,

looks expensive and it's pretty heavy. Medal came along with the awarding document signed by the president of FRY himself which was unfortunately thrown away

by the previous owner.

One more piece with different ribbon. White lines are obviously thinner and more apart. Apart from that the ribbon itself is about 2 mm wider.

Thanks! As always documents are harder to find than medals, I also kept my eyes opened for one of these.
Unfortunately the tube is made from different kind of material than the box  also the signature is printed, I was hoping each document was signed personally.

Not the same medal, just for comparison.

I stumbled upon this going through the ads. This tube seems to made out out of same kind of material as the box for the medal I posted earlier.
