Red Banner Of Labour.

I'd appreciate any advice on the attached Red Banner of Labour.
Is it a genuine 1936 Var.2 ?
The pictures on site advise these have slightly curved or curved lettering on the "Mondvor" whereas this ones lettering appears straight.

Hi

Can you tell us the serial Number? Judging from your scan, the rivet are slightly missplaced, traces of artifissial patina is clear, the edges of the order are not crisp and the "MONDVOR" stamp is not good, look at the last letter - it's almost not present.

I'll be very suspicious about this one.

Another thing: look at the order from it's side: the two pieces of the order should much perfectly. Also look at McDaniel's book on pages 158-159.

Thanks for your opinion Tal, think I'll leave it.
I believe the serial number is in the low 10,000 range.

Best regards,
Terry

Watch it! The total numbers of tipe 2a (shiskov/Muzalevsky) is about 7000.

So number 10000+ is.........not too good.

As Tal suggested, take a look at the edges..they should match perfectly..

These are weights of orders I've collected over the past 2 years. I'll post one thread for each award. All were weighed with the screwback off. I use a Pocket-Tech digital scale by Gram-Precision. Some were weighed over a year later to check the accuracy of my results and all were 100% accurate.

Order Name/Class-----Serial Number------Weight in grams


Red Banner of Labor 551 37
Red Banner of Labor 1511 37.6
Red Banner of Labor 4935 37.6

Order Red Banner Of Labor

I was researching my limited collection of orders and I came across this. I thought it was a type 5 variation 2, but the mint mark is curved with the ABOP below in a straight line. It seems to me to be a short oval, but maybe it is a type 3 variation 1?
The serial # is 900403 if that helps.
Any thoughts?
Thanks! :confused:

Be sure to look through the main section of the website. Here is a detail from the website which is more than likely your award. It is a Type 6 Variation 2. Serial number is 906735.

The Order of the Red Banner of Labor is one of my favorites. It is also a great award for a beginner in the hobby to start off collecting. There are plenty of types and variations to keep it interesting, plus there are always the more expensive types in case you want to get a little advanced. It's a well designed and colorful award.

High/Low Serial numbers for the Order of the Red Banner of Labor

This thread is for posting newly observed high and low serial numbers for the Order of the Red Banner of Labor. As everyone knows, Paul McDaniel's book is somewhat outdated for the serial number ranges he gives, so all members are asked to look at their RBL's and post here anything which is out range for their respective type and variation..Please post an image of your award if possible. For those who don't have McDaniel's book and would still like to participate, you can see most of these on the main site: http://www.soviet-awards.com/orders6.htm#order12
