Russian Medals
« on: January 12, 2019, 07:01:58 PM »
A friend came to me with these medals asking if I knew anything about them and how much they're worth, but I don't have a scooby. With them being in Russian text it's not as if you can easily google them...
Does anyone on here know anything about them? They're all just base metal.



















I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself..

Unfortunately like the US, the former USSR  gave medals for remembering to brush your teeth or not farting for 24 hours.
The Russians gave medals for anniversaries of this and that too....

I had a lot I brought back from Russia and Ukraine with me in the 90s but gave them away apart from one I keep spotting in the garden  ??? Strange but true.

They are all easy to look up if they have their ribbons
Oh look! another arsehole ;-) (people watching the professional beggars round central station)
