    this is the only russian medal i have in my collection, i got it on ebay so part of me is a bit worried but looks good imo.

    it has a larger number so that means it is a later decoration i read somewhere?

    No worries, it's definitely original. It's most likely a post-war long service award (probably awarded on November 5, 1954).

    Moskovski Monetni Dvor - Moscow Mint, it's 98 % out of 100 for long service.

    By the order from 4 June 1944:
    for 10 years - Medal of Combat Service
    15- Order of Red Star
    20-Order of Red Banner
    25-Order of Lenin
    30- Order of Red banner 2

    last order of long service awards was in 30.12.1956.

    Then just long service medals were given

    Rory, it's a fine example. My old eyes cant quite make out the number. It appears to be 326____ something.

    Here's an example of a Red Star that came back with no research, and a possible long-service award, #3206882, awarded October 25th, 1954 with Order Book to Kiril Zakharovitsh Romanets.

    I enjoy the newer Red Stars, relatively speaking, as much as the earlier examples!

    Hi Rory,

    Regardless if it is a long service award or not, it is a beautiful example. The enamel looks like it gleams and sparkles!

    Welcome to the Order of the Red Star Club, by the way!
