Default Russian medals, help

Hi guys, just took a plunge into the unknown buying these 2 medals, as i know nothing about russian awards... But it seemed like a good deal, and i really like the look of them, especially the enamel work is beautiful.

Can anyone tell me the age of them ? and are they made of silver ? it almost seems like silver in weight and feel, hard to explain.

The one with the blue ribbon have the number : 967134 - Unfortunately it is missing a pin
the one with yellow ribbon have the number : 1526691
Numbers seems to be elektro penciled

Labor Red Banner order and Badge of Honor order, both always made of silver.
These are late USSR period.

I don't think they have high collectible value but anyway they are silver made.
35-45$ ?

Welcome to the world of Soviet awards collecting!!
Those two you picked are great examples of Soviet award design as well as enamel work. Good choice!
As mentioned above they are made of silver. Many Soviet awards were made from silver.
The two date to right around 1980, plus or minus a few years.
The suspension on the Red Banner of Labor (missing pin) is very common and easily replaced. But since it's your first purchase I'd leave it as it is; keep the memories just as they are.
Yes, the serial numbers are made with an elektro pencil (aka rotating tool). Earlier awards where numbered by hand.
They are worth about US$40-60 each. Good value for collectors in my opinion.

1. Is nice since it's an early, brass and enamel version. It's for excellent service (in the Soviet Navy) for enlisted and non-coms. Very common though. No more than US$10 although it's a nice example if the pinback is all in order..
2. What Yuri said. Never seen before.
3. Sportsman's badge? Not communist since I see three crowns, and 3 crowns makes me think Sweden. Unless you want to focus on sport's related themes it might not be what you want, but it's up to you.

1. dates from the 60s to the early 70s so that makes it a nice Cold War collectible if nothing else.

Hi Eric!
Signs (badges) of military friendship of the Warsaw pact there was a large number of versions. It is not an award, but just memorable souvenir to various official actions. What sign is shown in a subject, I definitely don't know, I can't understand in what language the inscription is made. Probably some of the former countries of the socialist camp.

The sign Excellent of navy of the USSR has been established in 1939.
The sign shown in a subject of a sample of 1957. Has 3 various degrees. The price in the Russian market of military antiques of 400-600 rubles (it is less than 10 dollars)
