Order Of Glory.

This is Afgani Order of Glory, I believe this is 3rd class. I don't have a pic of the reverse. Not that any one of us here can read it ;)

Order of Glory

This award was established on May, 17th, 1982 by the decree of Presidium of Democratic Republic of Afghanistan (DRA).
It was awarded for merit in the development of industry, agriculture, transport and other branches of the national economy of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan, for outstanding state and public work, merit in business for revolutionary gains, strengthening the economy and for cultural communications of the DRA with other states.
It is made of Silver-plated brass, and enamels.
The Obverse shows an open book with a hammer and sickle. The inscription on the reverse can be translated as "Glory" or "Pride".
Awarded in one Class.

Everybody's equal, But some more than others!

Re: Order of Glory

This single class order (the Order of Glory) was, I believe (and have been told by friends in Kabul who recall those days), the rough eqivalent of the Soviet Red Banner of Labor.

I have never seen (not been told of) one that was numbered.

Re: Order Of Glory.

And the last one. Not enamel but some kind of lacquer.
