October revolution rivets

Recommended Posts


I have been bidding on an October Rvolution Order on e-bay. I have noticed that it has no rivets on the reverse, & i am concerned as to whether it is a copy or not. The reverse not only has no rivets but it is totally flat; i think that it may be a fake. If it is a fake, it is certainly a good one. If i 'win' this item then i can put it up on my wall. Being a copy it will be good to display; when i get a real one i can put it in my safe. That way i will have a real one in safe keeping & a copy being displayed.

Sorry i cannot get a scan of it, but i have yet to work out how to do that. I still cannot use the scanner to post pics of my medals.

there are two variations of the Order of October Revolution. The first variation has 4 rivets (serial number 1 to ~58.000) and the second variation (serial number ~58.000 to ~112.000) has 5 rivets. Orders without rivets are definitely fakes.
