    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?

    "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.
