Order of Labor in Silver

Recommended Posts

After reviewing the threads - I noticed that we seemed to have covered the Bronze and the Gold, but the Silver was not touched (though they were posted elsewhere..) To start off this thread - I will post a recent find: This is the Order of Labor in Silver issued from 1950 to 1953 when the Hungarian Parliament passed the 5th Law of 1953 (April) which disolved the Order of Labor in Gold, Silver and Bronze. In its place only the Order of Labor was used which was a gold class. To fill the gap of the silver and bronze classes in 1953 they used the Merit Medal of Socialst Labor (silver equivalent) and the Labor Merit Medal (bronze equivalent). This of course was done till 1964 when it was brought back in its three classes. Afte that the Merit Medal of Socialst Labor and the Labor Merit Medal were canceled.

You never know what you are going to find on a nice spring day...Order of Labor in Silver 1950 issue with the mini and ribbon bar. To say these are hard to come by is an understatement....

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem

    • I recall I did the same on hot days at Old Fort York back in 1973-74 - wool uniforms, and at 90F they would let you take your backpack off.   Michael
