It looks like a massive plaque..like it's attached on the exterior of the Mausoleum. Wouldn't be unusual for it to be awarded to the museum. Order of Lenin #1 was awarded to Komsomolskaya Pravda.

I think it is mounted on the wall as an ornament only. Even in the Soviet days, I think it is very unlikely that a tomb will be awarded with the order of Lenin...

Re: the gratest order of Lenin on earth

This is sweet. Has anyone seen this at Lenins tomb?

Re: the gratest order of Lenin on earth

Hi,

I don't remember having seen this inside... And it is certainly not outside.
I can check in the future...

Cheers.

Re: the gratest order of Lenin on earth

I think I remember seeing inside Lenin's tomb but it has been a decade and I cant remember for sure. I remember the experience of going through it and it was an impressive and very well taken care of. Clete

Re: the gratest order of Lenin on earth

Guys,

I was there a few months ago, and I didn't see any OL inside the Mausoleum; on the other hand, there were lots of State Seal of the USSR.

Looking carefully at Tal's photo, I can say with 95% certainty that it was taken outside of a building, not inside. That being said, I don't recall an OL on the outside of the Mausoleum either.

There is no Order of Lenin outside of the building. I'm 99% sure of this.
And, BTW, I'm quite sure this pic is not from the outside of the mausoleum.
Has the pic been taken inside ? I don't think, but cannot be formal...

But, as proposed by Tal, maybe just a temporary ornament...
