    Default Order of the Red Star: a 1945 award

    Hi Guys, I thought that I would share this with you. Bought from a friend this past weekend who has kindly donated the proceeds to the upkeep of forum. Thank you Comrade!

    There is a small flake off the enamel at about the 3 o'clock position.

    This example is made by MZPP (Moskovskiy Zavod Platino Pribor). Serial number is: 1835635

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade,

    Nice award and a nice patina. The flake is almost unnoticable.

    There is a web page, in russian, about soviet awards and medals which is incredibly useful. It shows all variations as well as dates of awards based on the serial number. Lots of photos of every variation.

    Ade, I am sure you know the web page, it has been down for a few months, but I have just seen it is up and running again. But for those of you who did not know about it, here it is:

    Russian awards





    Regards,
