    Default Fake Order Patriotic War first class ?

    Gentlemen,

    This order is on a spanish auction site. I am 99% sure it is not legit, but I would like your opinion just to confirm it , as I want to answer the seller which offered it to me after I asked him a question about another soviet item.

    For me, the giveaway is that the order itself looks as a cast copy, with a "dirty" mintmark and the numbers are engraved in a weird way, not with the usual system.



    Thanks in advance and regards,

    Gus

    Hi Gus , Its an original 1985 re issue . These were awarded to Veterans en masse then . The hammer and sickle isnt a seperate part in gold as on wartime examples.

    hi my friend rob is right the 1985 1st class i believe was awarded to all men who had been awarded the 2nd class in the war it is a solid silver cast and the hammer and sickle is gold also the mint mark was a raised version on all 1985 issues the 2nd class was awarded to all surviving vetrans who had not been awarded either of the two during the war they sell for about 25 to 35 regards duncan

    This looks legit for a 1985 issue. Although I haven't seen the numbers that dark before.

    They are selling it for a starting price of 39.98 euros.

    I always thought that 1985 issued orders had much higher numbers, not such a low one like in this case.

    Hi Pierre, the one shown is a 1st class award.

    Hi Gus, have a look at this site:

    It will tell you all you need to know about these awards, serial numbers etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The number darkened due of the order itself is silver, coated with gold ( war time example is gold), after the number engraved, the gold gold coating is lost in that place, and it's normal for silver if it's became darker
