Circular bronze medal with eyelet for ribbon suspension; the face with the full-length figure of an N.K.V.D. marksman, a five-pointed star to the right bearing a radiant hammer and sickle, a laurel branch to the left, inscribed ‘CCCP’ to the right ((= SSSR for the Sojus Sowjetskich Sozialistitscheskich Respublik = the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), dated ‘1940’ below; the reverse with the crest of the N.K.V.D. (Narodnyy Komissariat Vnutrennikh Del = People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs), circumscribed ‘ЭА ОТЛИЧНУЮ СТРЕЛЬБУ’ (for Outstanding Marksmanship); on pentagonal hanger mounted for wear and with red ribbon. The medal appears to be of relatively recent manufacture and, as there is no historical record of the medal, we assume it is a fantasy creation.
