This Order of the Red Star is in excellent, well above average condition. The details are mostly visible although the higher laying parts like the soldiers hands show light wear. The enamels are beautiful and show some contact marks only. Its screwpost has not been shortened and there have been no repairs. It comes with its time period screwplate which fits ok but is a bit wobbly.
