I was talking with a friend and both had doubts.
The "A" in the center, I didn't see any example that touch the top part.
What are your conclusions to confirm that the medal is original?
What are the main clues and fails usually used in copies?

There's serial number ranges where the A touches the border. These serial number ranges also have the C and last A touching the border on the bottom. So no problems with this one.

Thank you very much for your help.
Now, do you know people who can search the name of the soldier, citation, etc using the serial number of the medal?
Best regards

And is 'Egorka' still here? I think he does research also. I think he's in Denmark and Auke is in Holland.

Also, the OG3 is a nice low number; might be 'juicy'. Like early/middle 1944.

Hello!

Finally, I received the history behind the medal:

"The Order of Glory was awarded on July 3, 1944 to Guards Master Sergeant Pyotr Ivanovich Timchenko (born in 1911), commander of a 45-mm gun in a gun battery of the 168th Guards Rifle Regiment, 55th Guards Rifle Division. According to the citation, on June 24, 1944, during the operation to breach the heavily fortified German defenses near the village of Pruzhinishche (seems to be in Belarus), he provided artillery support for the infantry. He destroyed an enemy mortar, a light machine gun, and several dugouts and killed more than 20 Germans. He was also awarded a Red Star, Medal for Courage and Victory over Germany Medal."
