    I bought this from a seller in Ukraine. I own another Order of the Red Star which I know is the real deal, but this one seems too different -- too good of shape for me to be comfortable, although the patina on the opposite side looks like the real deal to me. What has me confused though is on the front side there is a gap between the bayonet tip and the rim. On all other Order of the Red Stars I've seen, including my known real one, there is little to no clearance between the bayonet tip and the rim. What do you think?

    It looks absolutely fine to me.

    Compare to the one towards the bottom of this page in the same number range (dated 1945-46).

    Ah, you're right! I did not know there was this variation. Thanks for the help!

    It's a good MMD Moskow Mint made star. The serial number longs a bit odd for being vertically stretched but is still good imo. According to the following classification it is a Type 6 variant 5.1
    See: http://www.odysseus1.freeyellow.com/odysseus/rs.htm

    For this serial number range the bayonet should not reach the circle so it is all correct

    Agreed, a perfectly fine Red Star.
