Soviet Order Of Red Banner Low#260627 Ww2 Issue Russian Ussr Military Medal Orig For Sale

Soviet Order Of Red Banner Low#260627 Ww2 Issue Russian Ussr Military Medal Orig

Soviet Order of the Red Banner, #260627.

This GUARANTEED 100% ORIGINAL, WW2 era Soviet military award made at the Soviet Mint and officially bestowed by the Soviet Government - not a replica or reissue!

Made in SOLID SILVER with gold plating and beautiful quality "hot baked" enamels. The medallion measures 45.4 mm tall (including the eyelet), 37.5 mm wide and weighs 24.1 grams not including the suspension and connecting link.

According to the reference guide "The Order of the Red Banner" by Durov & Strekalov, this piece was manufactured in the first half 1945 at the Moscow Mint. According to the Durov and Strekalov classification, this particular version of the order is Type 4, Variation 2, Sub-variation 3. It features curved up mint mark in large font, with a straight dash over the last character in the word "Monetnyi". The most likely issue date is May or June of 1945, judging by the serial number of the award.

Unlike many other Soviet awards, the Order of the Red Banner (sometimes called Combat Red Banner) was a strictly military decoration. Moreover, in the official Soviet award hierarchy it was second only to the Order of Lenin!

The award has damage to enamel but is still very attractive overall. Despite the chip to the upper and left edges of the banner, most of the enamel on the banner is still intact and retains very nice luster. There is almost no wear to other areas and the details of the wreath are perfect. The fire gilt finish on the wreath is partly obscured by silver patina but still clearly visible. The order comes with relatively old (although not original), lightly worn ribbon mounted on a recent, Soviet made suspension device in aluminum (Soviet war veterans proudly wore their actual awards on frequent occasions – not just the ribbon bars – and therefore routinely replaced both the ribbons and the suspensions). The connecting link between the badge and the suspension is original and hasn’t been cut.

All in all, this is a great looking historic WW2 piece and can be an excellent addition to a serious collection of Soviet awards or WW2 decorations in general.

We are offering it exclusively to US buyers at (and no behind the scene “games”).
