Miniatures Of Soviet Awards.

Many years ago I remember seeing a "rack" 4-5 of these mini awards for sale and if memory serves me correct, they had improvised mini-ribbons too, but I'm not entirely certain.

I've been looking for these for years and have only found these two. They are very high quality and very small (US cent for comparison). I believe these to be official issue due to the quality, but they're so small there is no room for a mintmark.

I have found cheaper "znachki" designs (an Order of Lenin and Order of the Red Star) about the size of a US nickel, but those are cheap metal with an inexpensive pin-back and in no way compare to the quality of these true minis.

Also, one of the screwbacks seems not to be original issue due to the Latin script.

Does anyone know anything about these or has seen others?
