  3. Labor Awards of the USSR

    The next Soviet Labor award, i want to show, is the Order of Labor Glory, which was institutet in January 1974 and was given in three classes. The shown example is a third class (second version). On earlier Examples the Hammer and Sickel were attached with two rivets. Later versions were made in one piece. The obvious difference between the classes is, that the 2nd class has a blue enameled center and the 1st class a red enameled center. Someone, who got all three classes of this order was called a "Cavalier of the Order of Labor Glory" and had the same privileges like a Hero of the Soviet Union.

    This is an award book, which came with a late Type 6 ORBL. Unfortuately the most of the later books came without a photo of the recipient.

    Here you can see the serial number, which is scratched in the lower end of the order. There are numerous styles of engraving, and later engraving were made with a rotating tool.

  11. Orders Books: Editions & Series

    Here are the two known 1967 editions of Order Books. Both have hard covers and the only apparant difference to the earlier edition is the missing stamp on the photo page. I guess, that the number of photos in these later editions is even smaller than in the editions of the 50s. The photo and personal data page:
