Romanian Distinguished Service in Defense of Social Order & the State 1st Class

Recommended Posts

This just came in today. The RSR legend under the enamelled national crest shows it is 1965+.

From Lukasz Gaszewski's ribbons of the world website


I see that the ribbon bar ribbons changed in 1968

Does anyone have the RPR versions? What do the 2nd and 3rd Classes look like?

Hallo Ricky, :beer:

Nice piece :jumping:

with regards R.S.R. versions:

2nd Class had silver rays with red stones, gold ears of corn left and right of the tri-color.

3rd Class had bronze rays, white stones, silver ears of corn left and right of the tri-color.

:cheers: Were these Orders awarded in the Soviet style: first held a 3rd Class, then got a 2nd Class, then got the 1st Class-- or were these awarded individually by recipient's rank/status?

:unsure: TODAY is my first day "collecting" Romanian awards. :rolleyes:

Welcome to ROMANIAN AWARDS :love:

now you will have to go out and chase tractors :P

Frist class ("gilt") <i>vs.</i> third class ('bronze") is always tricky, for any of these orders?<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

Hallo Ed. <img src="http://gmic.co.uk/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cheers.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":cheers:" border="0" alt="cheers.gif" />

First Class is always Gilt, Silver Second, and Bronze third, however as can be seen with the 1st to 5th class Agricultural awards

there are the odd anomaly, but the combinations are very basic. I have not seen many of the awards at the collectors fairs here, some are no doubt still held by the family's, others, are being sourced by the professional dealers out of Bucharest out to make a killing by selling to the west.

We had a tidal wave of all the "twinkly" Orders 10 years or so ago and now: extinct as the wooly mammoth, nowhere to be found. Which is odd, since I've never met anybody here who admitted to collecting these.

Above was described as State Security, but I'm wondering if the "normal" civil police also got these?

Noooooooooooooooo books.

Do anyone know about any books about Romanian awards? Is there any?
