USSR Russia CCCP-original 1960th Soviet silver ORDER HONOR-Znak Pocheta medal-excellent condition
Original Soviet era Order of Honor (Znak Pocheta – ЗНАК ПОЧЁТА) in practically as-issued condition; complete with the original pin-on suspension plank. Awarded in the late ’60s – early ’70s; serial number 1288511 (SN is hand-engraved on the back). Bright red enamel is smooth and damage-free; scarce this nice – most of these orders are pretty banged-up from constant wear.
The order is about 51 mm from the top of the loop to the lower edge; total weight is 40.5 grams. Very attractive piece cast in silver; suspension plank is galvanized steel with a silk ribbon. These awards were not made at a badge factory but were actually struck at the Moscow mint – thus the extra attention to details and excellent overall quality.
Not cleaned, polished, or tempered with in any way; these are the actual photos. Rare collectible piece of fading Soviet history and hard to find outside of Russia as their current laws prohibit export of all orders & medals. This order is guaranteed original or your money back.
