Hero of Socialist Labour, Type 2 / Variant 3

Gentlemen,

I have that HSL type 2 / variation 3 with s/n. 10852 in my collection.

Variation 3 of the type 2 started with s/n. 10000. Andrew has s/n. 10142 on his website: http://mondvor.narod.ru/HLab.html

The small nut on the screw at the hanger is missing :( .

Is it possible to tell the year or period, when HSL 10852 had been awarded - around the year 1960 :unsure: ?

When did the chance from variation 2 to variation 3 (s/n. 10000) took place :unsure: ?

Many thanks for your expertise :cheers: .

Best regards :beer:

Christian

Very nice example :jumping:

I would think its more mid 60's as mine is 7925 and this was awarded in 1958 :unsure:

Dear Vic,

many thanks :cheers: .

In my opinion, the HSL is a very unique and outstanding award:

On one side the HSL is the most supreme (civil) award of the CCCP - to be compared with a British KBE. The title HSL was something like a "Socialist Knighthood".

On the other side it is a 100 % democratic award, because it was awarded to collective farmers and factory workers as well, as to renowed scientists, artists or top Politburo members.

It's difficult to find informations (in English) about that unique medal in the internet :( :

BTW: Gorbachev http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Gorbachev never received a HSL - and that was somehow correct ... :rolleyes:

It seems, that my HSL might have been awarded in the very early Brezhnev-Kosygin-Mikoyan-Era :jumping: .
