Czechoslovakia - Order of Republic - 1 st type


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

here are photos of Czechoslovakian Order of Republic ( Řád Republiky in Czech ). This is the first type of this order, which was ordered between years 1951 and 1960. This first type could by recognised by letters ČSR on the back side of the order. (ČSR means Československá republika - Republic of Czechoslovakia). This order was ordered for merit of the state, to the best workers, artists and politicians.

This one, from my collection was ordered in 1952 to a coalminer. It is made from silver with enamels and golded. In my opinion this is one of the prettiest medals of communist Czechoslovakia.

Good day. Very rare order, especially in original box and with original document and presentation book. I have the same book in complect of one women awarded with Rad Prace CSR emission.

Please can you post better scans of marking! It's Zukov or Karnet a Kisely?

It is Karnet Kysely. What year of presentation book do you have? I want to have ZUKOV version too, but it is little bit expensive to have two same orders only with different small marking. And I dont have third version of Rad Republiky wtih document. So I rather buy this one.
