Thought I would share my lastest buy. I Just got this on May 24, at the Sam’s Military Relic Show in San Antonio, TX. I am 100% certain that this is not an original medal bar, due to level of prestige of these awards and for a recipient to receive all four of these labor medals without receiving any other intermediate awards would be kind of odd. Nonetheless, it is a handsome grouping with lots of detail, enamel and color. Starting from the left, the medals are:

- Order of October Revolution
- Order of the Red Banner of Labor
- Order of Honor
- Order of Labor Glory 3rd Class

Here is the backside and serial numbers...

- Order of October Revolution #56788
- Order of the Red Banner of Labor #287963
- Order of Honor #1328175
- Order of Labor Glory 3rd Class #521177

The serial numbers would also suggest that this is not an original bar due to the large gap between the numbers.
