No pics (yet). I find this one to be rather ugly but perhaps I'll change my mind when I have a nice first class one in the palm of my hands:)

I kind of like it compared to the Red Banner of Labor :P You'll find they are rather substantial in hand (they are made in three pieces) and have a nice heft to them. Here's a later Albanian made 2nd class example:

Just to demonstrate -- as if further evidence were needed -- that I have limited focus and phaleristic compass. (And surprised by the weight of the Order of Labor; very robust!) Order of Labor type 2.3; Medal of Labor type 1.2.

The Medal of Labor was one of my first Albanian medals I ever got and it really did hook me into the country's decorations and history. And coincidentally, it, too, is a type 1 var 2 like Ed's above. This order has always been a personal favorite of mine. I have a very small wish list of Albanian decorations nowadays and an IKOM made Order of Labor is on it.

Great stuff, Ed!

Cheers,

Eric

I finally picked up a Mennica made Order of Labour for a reasonable price! Apparently only a few hundred made? This one is a 2nd class and the quality is very nice!
