Comments

Hello! I´d like to inform you that this object is not a coin, but rather part of a medal. Originally it should have had a red ribbon with white stripes and a bottom in the same colors. The ribbon was clamped to the upper part of the medal, instead of being attached to a ring, as would be usual in western decorations.
