Gents,

This is a scarce Medal from that time. Here are the four types of the Hero of the Socialist Labour Medal:

"A" – This is the very first one from 1953 – awarded 11 times.

"B" – This is the second type of the Medal, but it is actually the star of the '53 version but with a new type of ribbon.

"C" – This is the third type, the new ribbon part continued and the star became prismatic. The "B" type was awarded just a few times in 1954 and the "C" type was from 1954. Altogether just 58 awards were made with these two types.

"D" – This is the last type of the Medal from 1964. You can see the same ribbon, but the star is made of gold, and 41 awards were made during its existence.

OOOH! That's interesting... so the one I posted is your 'Type D' - yes?

Would you be willing to permit me to use your images of the earlier versions on my website? Full acknowledgements given, of course (but I'll be asking for your real name, PM if you prefer).

Dear Megan,

As far as I can judge from the picture, your photograph shows a type "C" Star. All "D" type Stars were made of gold and appropriately hallmarked as you can see the last piece in my picture.

cimbineus,

Good to have you back with us. I was hoping that you would post these awards again.

Thank you Gordon. I needed some time to re-evaluate my relationship with this Forum after certain very unpleasant events and groundless attacks I received in return for my continuous help and assistance. But, I am here ...

Hi everybody!

Sorry, a speak english just a little bit.

A have an :
"D" – This is the last type of the Medal from 1964. You can see the same ribbon, but the star is made of gold, and 41 awards were made during its existence."

This is certainly this type,  it mades from 14K golden (there's the hallmark on the ring, on top of the star).

It hasnt document with it, but I know who get the award (my grandfather).

My question is, how much is the value of this award aproximately? 
The award there is perfect condition, absolutely unused.

Thank you for the help!

Kind regards,

Zsolt

Cimbineus, Is it possible to have images of the reverses for reverence, also I can see the differences between types 1 to 3 but I cannot see any obvious differences between types 3 and 4, can you explain (it is possible I am being myopic).

Yes, of course, Paul. By appearance there are no obvious differences, those two look identical by first glance. The only difference is the material. The first is a gold plated brass piece, made and awarded between 1954 and 1964, whilst the second is a gold one, issued after 1964. You can see the hallmark.
