    Default Help with order of the Red Star

    Hello, I am thinking of buying this Order of The Red Star but am unfamiliar with these items and wanted to know if this one is authentic. I have read a little about fakes and its not obviously a fake from what I have seen, but that dosnt mean much. I have looked up the serial number on this forum and found it dates to 1945. Any help appreciated, Doug

    Seems fine to me. The screw pin might be a replacement.

    Hi Doug, it is fine.

    1945 going by the serial number.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Or polished. . .

    The number appears to be 2550630, which would indicate manufacture at the Moscow Mint, 1945, and, as aforementioned, probably awarded early to mid 1945.

    Excellent and a nice price.

    Next step is to get it researched. Sadly this will now cost about 40 due to the exchange rate. But it is well worth doing. Auke is the man for this.

    Cheers, Ade.
