So are these Orders rare? Are they listed somewhere? Seems that mondvor doesn't carry a photo of it. You peeked my curiosity Alexei and I checked and there are no drill marks or chips missing from the enamel. Is there a way to confirm the rivets? I mean their size maybe? I'm open to further researching this...

Guys,

Since I have restarted this old discussion I thought it would make sence to join the threads. Please read it from the beginning.

No matter what the story is behind these awards they are considered desirable by collectors, and command higher prices than the regular pieces.

Alexei

Gents, I have a question. In the OPW 2nd class, the hammer and sickle is made of 583/1000 parts gold. I have an Order, 2nd Class with a serial number in the 1985 issue range and the H&S are silver instead of gold. The gold faded over time?

The gold H&S is only on the T2 pieces. T3 pieces (i.e. 1985 issue) were made from one piece of silver with gold plating applied.

Hi,

yes it's quite a rare variation...trench reverse 1 run. McDaniels book's serial number ranges are outdated, but according to Screwback's site lowest for this variation is 74 757 and highest 76 500. Still nice and very rare piece with less than 2000 pieces produced.

Regards,

Lauri

No mint mark, but apparently some did also have mint marks.
