MZPP Orders of the Red Star


Recommended Posts

These are from the "Московском заводе "Платинаприбор" (Platinapribor factory). Look at page 4 of the Order of the Red Star from Mondvor website.

Here is the serial number range :

min - 1792337, max - 1945503.

min - 2051119, max - 2290504.

Almost all Red Stars were produced in the Moscow Mint. Some early pieces were produced in the Krasnokamsk Mint and a later batch was produced in the 'Platinapribor' Factory in Moscow (Moskovsky Zavod Platinapribor - MZPP). The approximate serial number range for these MZPP Red Stars is 1,790,000 to 1,945,000 and 2,050,000 to 2,290,000, about 395,000 pieces in total.

Here's one of mine:

OK, so the EARLIER number range are the "thin arms" style, while the later range are the "fat cookie" type?

I always considered this an odd, left over screwpost base one, without the screwpost ring---

From the documented group to Polar Fleet naval aviation Major Verbitsky.

His 2nd Red Star is a 1953 long service award, but his "MZPP" one was awarded in August 1945.
