Re: Order of the Star of the Revolution

Second class

The later variety (note that the obverse center is rotated) and the name from the reverse of this variety.

Re: Order of the Star of the Revolution

And two mysterious deviant specimens. The first seems to have been made in Yugoslavia (based on the distinctive two-pronged design for the pin). This one has no name on the reverse. Is this an unknown single-class award or a prototype for a single-class award? I only have an obverse image of the second mystery piece.

As with all Myanmar awards, there is much yet to be learned.

It would seem that this award has been misidentified by all for a considerable time. I believe the Burmese name is "လွတ်လပ်ရေး မော်ကွန်း၀င် (ပထမဆင့်)". "လွတ်လပ်ရေး" being Independence as in ("လွတ်လပ်ရေးနေ့" - Independence Day). It always seemed strange to be referred to as the "Star Of Revolution" when Burma didn't have a quick fix independence revolution.

The latter part of the name has been too difficult to translate (it's Burmese after all - not the easiest in the world) but "မော်ကွန်း" could possibly equate to Commemorative. The correct translation could end up being "Independence Commemorative Star" Order or "Independence Commemorative" Order or even something along the lines of "Independence Fighter" Order. More work will be done.

For now here's one in wear to a Muslim recipient.

Also an original award document to Bo Tun Yin. I'm not even considering translating it!

Re: Order Of The Star Of Independence.

Here is a late example third class. These Orders are by far to most easily available Burmese awards on the market. I snapped this example up for a double digit figure starting with a "2".

Re: Independence Commemorative.

Well finally the name has been cracked - "လွတ်လပ်ရေး မော်ကွန်း" which is simply "Independence Commemorative". There is then the option of the class being mentioned in brackets "(ပထမဆင့်)" is First Class, "(ဒုတိယဆင့်)" is Second Class and "(တတိယဆင့်)" is Third Class.

The Myanmar Herald recently had this image of what I think is a First Class Document. I may translate it at a later date.
