Soviet Order of Lenin; made out of solid gold, platinum and enamels. Measures 43.14 mm in height and 38.58 mm in width. It weighs 32.8 gram without its suspension. The serial number and the mint mark are located at its reverse.

The order is in great condition despite some internal cracks in the red enamel on the 12 o’clock position. The gray enamel is perfect and the gold and platinum only shows some tiny dings and scratches. All details are crisp and even the higher parts of the order show almost no wear. There have been no repairs and the connection ring has not been cut. The steel suspension is original and time period to the award.
