Dolf and William,

The quality of the scan from EBay is horrible to say the least. As I mentioned before, I requested very good scans of his Republic awards which is why they look much nicer.

William, regarding authenticity, maybe fake, I don't know for sure. The dealer who had it listed had excellent feedback and was selling many other high end awards at the time. I haven't seen more than two of these in my lifetime, so I am sure it is possible it is fake. Would like to see more of them, particularly in the number range of the flat-back. Anyone else have an opinion on authenticity?

BTW Dolf, I really like this award too. It has some beautiful symbolic elements. I particularly like the cotton plants at the bottom with the "cotton tufts" of white enamel.

This Azerbaijani Red Banner of Labor is imho the one I like the most from all these recently RBL you posted. What is your favourite?

Thanks a lot for posting them.

Best,

Dolf
