Russian Soviet Chernobyl Liquidator Medal Orig. Ussr Award Atomic Disaster Badge:
Soviet Award Badge for those who participated
in the clean-up
after the Reactor Meltdown in Chernobyl.
Original 1980s official Soviet issue, NOT a recent replica!
The medallion is 36 mm wide, 40mm tall not including the suspension device. Made in solid brass with gold finish and high quality "hot baked" enamels. The suspension shows the raised logo of the Moscow Mint (MMD) on the reverse.
This badge has striking imagery: red cross with a drop of blood on blue in the center, punctured by the Gamma, Beta, and Alpha rays. The writing in the black band is "To a Participant of the Liquidation of the Consequences of the Accident, ChAES (Chernobyl Atomic Power Station)".
The badge is in excellent condition, shows virtually no tarnish to the gold finish. Includes original suspension with clean ribbon, connecting link holding the medallion and fully functional pin attachment.
Awarded by the Soviet government to heroic firefighters, policemen and workers - many of them volunteers - who had come from all parts of the Soviet Union to participate in the rescue and clean-up efforts. They often worked at or in the immediate vicinity of the reactor site with little or no protection from the deadly radiation.
