    Exactly. For all the screwback awards in my collection I have used Filer's classification. For the other awards I have used Kuznetsov and Pak's system ( ). It's in Russian, but up to date and with the help of an online dictionary and some patience the system should be understandable.

    Auke, thank you for the link. Believe it or not, my browser's translation program does a pretty good job for the text. The photographs of the different varieties of Red Stars are excellent.

    #2041206, possible November, 1946 long-service award. It appears this Red Star has been polished.

    The reverse looks weird but the order is authentic. It was produced in September 1945 by the Moscow Mint.

    I thought so too, Auke. I suspect this example was polished, hence the "weird" appearance to the reverse.

    Exclamation Re: A pair of RED STARS...

    How expensive are these today? I think I paid $15 for mine... I wear it on my Russian Ushanka cap... probably should not have use silver polish on it..

    But oh well....

    Nowadays the cheapest Red Stars are about 50 USD.

    Up to two or three thousand U.S. dollars for four digit examples. . .

    If you paid only $15, you must have purchased your example some time ago.

    Most collectors don't polish their medals and orders, but some do. I simply prefer my medals and orders the way they came.
