    Hi, you have an Order of the Red Star (top left) What serial number does this one have please, as I will be able to date it from that. I collect Red Stars

    Next to it is an Order of the Red Banner of Labour.

    Bottom row: Victory over German Medal, left, and a 1985 issue Order of the Great Patriotic War 2nd class.

    Cheers, Ade.

    From my serial number database I can tell you that:

    Your Order of the Red Star was awarded in 1945.

    The Order of the Red Banner of Labour was awarded in 1973.

    As I mentioned before the Order of the Great Patriotic War 2nd class is a 1985 issue.

    The alloy suspender on the Victory over Germany medal is a postwar made one. Early issues are brass or steel.

    Cheers, Ade.
