A nice original WWII/immediate post war bar here for a Soviet veteran who participated in the Defense of the Caucasus. The Defense medal on this bar is unique in the sense that it is serialized, possibly by the veteran himself or at the unit level.
It is theorized, with some convincing evidence, that veterans would serialize their medals with their certificate numbers. There is still some debate on this topic.
This bar features the following medals, from L to R:
- Medal for Defense of the Caucasus Region
- Victory Over Germany in the Great Patriotic War
- Jubilee medal for "30 Years Anniversary of the foundation of the Soviet Army and Navy."
