Full Size Coraline Prop Bobinsky's Medal

Whoo Hoo! Another little trinket to add to my Coraline collection. Apparently Mr. Bobinsky was awarded the medal for Service at the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster on April 26, 1986. The medal reads "Participant in the clean-up campaign". The "4A3C" is the No. for the "Chernobilskaya Nuclear Power Plant." I think that the real medal is much smaller in person than the scale chosen in the movie, but I am sure that decision was made so it could be clearly seen on screen. Once I found the identity of the medal I picked one up. I'm stoked!

  1. That's not "4A3C" on the bottom of the medal, it is the Cyrillic (Russian letters) abbreviation for "CAES" which stands for Chernobyl Atomic Energy Station.
