:Cat-Scratch: That is only the second ribboned Order I've seen with the long "stickpin" reverse. The only other one I've seen yet was an Ana Betancourt. These Orders are VERY heavy and needlessly thick with their complicated multiple piece construction, so the extra reinforcement of a long pin certainly must have helped "anchoring" one on clothing, with only the feeble DDR clone pin assembly.

We're ending the year on a great note here in this section-- thanks for all the great new scans! :cheers:

It is a beautiful order. The Communists did make pretty medals! What was it awarded for?

Paul,

This is another Order where the critaria in not really clear.

It is Farming Merit Order.

la Orden ?17 DE MAYO? a los compa?eros que serelacionan a continuaci?n, en reconocimiento a la destacada labor realizada en el desempe?o de sus funciones, su consagraci?n al trabajo, y su valiosa contribuci?n y apoyo a la transformaci?n agropecuaria del pa?s

In recognition to the outstanding work made in the performance of functions, consecration of the work, and its valuable contribution and support to the farming transformation of the country.

At first I thought it was awarded by La Asociaci?n Nacional de Agricultores Peque?os (ANAP) The National Association of Small Agriculturists. But this doesn't seem to be the case because of the Council of state reverse.

The Orden ?17 de Mayo? honours Niceto Perez Garc?a a man who fought for farmers rights in Cuba.

Niceto was a farmer who came from Filipinas community.

He was murdered on May 17th, 1946, by Lino Mancebo Pose??s agents.

May 17th is observed every year as Farmers Day, since 1959 when the First Agrarian Reform Law was signed that delivered the land to its true owners. Also on this day the foundation of the ANAP, in 1961.

Regards Eddie
