Order of the Red Banner 2nd award #17923


Rare sub-variation with few specimens known!



Order of the Red Banner 2nd award: Made of silver and enamels. Measures 36.78 mm in width and 45.63 mm in height and weighs 23.1 grams. The mint mark is located above the serial number and consists of one line. It is assumed that these orders were produced by the Moscow Mint and only a handful are known to exist: 16610, 16628, 16662, 16704, 16828, 16848, 16854, 17012, 17031, 17184, 17192, 17259, 17284, 17341, 17467, 17587, 17772, 17813, 17889, 18630, 18724, 18843 and 18886. (Mondvor)


This original order is in nice condition with all details crisp. Both the red and white enamels fully present but the white enamels show some corrosion around the ‘2’. Most of the gold plating is still present and the reverse shows few dings and scratches. Its connection ring is uncut and the double layer steel suspension is time period.


A great addition for the serious variation collector!


The Order of the Red Banner recognized military deeds. Before the establishment of the Order of Lenin, the Order of the Red Banner functioned as the highest (and practically the only) military order of the USSR. Practically all well-known Soviet commanders became Cavaliers of the Order of the Red Banner. Also awarded to NKVD personnel.
