Comes fully researched (award card and citation, total of 4 color scans).Awarded to ShtrafBat captain Sobolev V. The award card mentions the "return" of award in 1970, apparently, the issue of this duplicate, which is very rare!
This was his only decoration for WWII. Mint condition, beautiful dark patina. Rare combination of duplicate and issued to ShtrafBat captain, very collectable item.
