    Default Opinions on Order of the Patriotic War

    Hi everyone,

    I picked up this Order of the Patriotic War recently for the price of a 1985 issue and would like your opinions. I think it's a genuine 2nd class WW2 issue that someone has painted/gilded gold? Maybe to make it appear like a 1st class award?

    Thanks in advance, David.

    Looks like you’re right. Wartime OGPWII turned into OGPWI, but I’m not sure whether in 1985 or someone tried to make money on it selling as OGPW I. 1985 jubilee orders had it’s own numbers and here we have original wartime OGPW II engraved number-circa early 1945.

    Looks like a good Type 2 variation 4 Order. Too bad about the gold paint. Takes away the nice appeal for me to be honest.

    Thanks! I'll see if I can find a way to remove the gold paint without damaging the silver underneath.
