The condition is indeed very good.
You have probably noticed that there isn't too much detail on the wreath. This has nothing to do with being worn. This was caused by a worn die.

Actually Pascal I hadn't noticed that.It was only when I used the zoom on my computer I could see what you meant about the lack of detail on the wreath.And a worn die isn't something I would have given much thought to.I suppose when a die might produce tens thousands of such awards they are prone to wear e.g the Demjansk shield missing log type also attributed to a worn die. I only just learned this fact from a member here.Well spotted.
