    Hi Taz, it has six (6) seperate pieces and at this point seems to be the most complex of the orders with respects to construction. There may be some silver involved, but the bulk seems to be base metals and gilded, like so many other of the orders. There appears to have been precious little precious metals used in the assembly of any Cuban Order known thus far. Perhaps a decision of expediency, or perhaps one of neccessity. I suspect it will be some time before we have any definitive concepts.

    This is the highest decoration of La Uni?n de J?venes Comunistas (UJC)

    the Union of Young Communists.

    Decreto Ley #30

    Order ?Julio Antonio Mella?

    given to Cuban and foreign youngsters in recognition of extraordinary merits reached in creative work; in study, research in artistic or literary culture or sports; or in the struggle for the conquests and defence of the achievements and interests of the Cuban or foreign youth, as well as the consequent practice of proletarian internationalism.

    Also, in exceptional cases, can be given to other people for the same reasons or for extraordinarily contributing to the integral formation of the young generation.

    Regards Eddie
