A Hero City's Hero Star


Recommended Posts

To all:

The Hero City of Tula was awarded its title on December 7th, 1976 and presented with Hero Star serial number 11,422 (seen below). 10 years earlier, in December 1966, Tula was awarded the Order of Lenin (serial number 382,180) for its citizens' contributions to the Nazi defeat.

Why does the ribbon on Moscow's HSU star look messed with?

That's more of a rhetorical question, as I'm sure none of us have the answer, but doesn't it seem odd that a city's Hero star would have been fingered so much? It doesn't have the normal signs of wear that one would expect, but a LOT of people have fingered it, the ribbon is nearly beat, and you can tell where the screw nut was removed and the ribbon re-sewn at one point.

Odd...Thanks for posting though!
