    ORIGINAL POST: -----------------------------------------------

    Does this stand a chance of being a WW2 period original?

    no. 825092 - date range chart puts it at 1944 if original I think.

    I've got this on hold for me for $75, and just wanted to make sure I'm correct that it's a period original before plopping down the cash.

    Thanks folks!

    Scott

    The star is definitely from WW2. Probably awarded in the fall of 1944, or possibly in November 1944 as a decoration for 15 years of service.

    Thanks Auke! I really appreciate it. Sounds like a good buy for $75.

    I need to get with you sometime after the New Year to have this and my Order of the Patriotic War researched. Do you still do that?

    It all depends on the classification you use: McDaniel, Mondvor, Filer, Strekalov, etc. They all classify Red Stars differently.
