Title "Hero of the Mongolian People's Republic"

Since the earlier thread got eaten by forum gremlins, let us try again.

Somewhat mythologically, the use of this title can be dated back to 1206 and the era of Chengiz Khan. While it had been used sporadically in the 1911-21 peiod, the modern "Hero" title began after liberation in 1922.

Until 1941, there was no badge to accompany the title and when the new badge was adopted it was awarded retrospectively to those who had received the title before.

Type 1 -- only 6 were awarded, while 25 were made, ordered in Oct. 1940 -- most badges you see are unawarded from the bank -- observed serial number range Low = 1/High =23 -- Battushig A1


Type 1.1 -- mintmark МД -- serial number range unknown

The first two badges of this type were awarded to Horloogiyn Choybalsan (Хорлоогийн Чойбалсан). I show an example and the recipient wearing this badge. The damage/repair to this badge looks much worse in the scan than it does in real life.

Type 1.2 -- mintmark МОНЕТНЫЙ ДВОР -- serial number range unknown
