Is there just 2 variants of the Order of the Red Banner or 3.

In my boosk i found that type 2 variant 1, has Mondvor mint mark and serial numbers cca. 20.000 to 21.100. And variant 2 has mint mark Monetny Dvor stamped separately serial ranges 21.400 to 82.300.

But lately i heard some debates that there are 3 variants of type 2.

What is the diferences and what is the serial number range?

Here is my type 2 number 49.795, is it variant 2? or variant 3 as i was told lately?

Thanks for the help.

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it.

So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
