 80th Anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution Medal

This is quite an unofficial medal made of brass but some still prowdly wear it.  Established on 25 September 1997 by the Presidium of the Congress of the People's Deputies of the Soviet Union (yes, the "Government" still exists inspite of the dissolution of the USSR).  The award document is not filled in but is properly stamped and signed by the President of the Standing Committee Comrade S. Umalatova (facsimile).  Unissued condition.
