    Dear colleagues!

    I got recently this Order of the Patriotic War.

    How can you differentiate the ones awarded  during the WW2 from the ones of a later issue.

    Thank you very much in advance for any help!

    This is a 1985 issue.


    The look of the WW2 orders looks different as the OPW1 is gold while the 1985 version is gold gilt(like plated)


    A really easy tell if you cant tell the difference is that the engraved number is underlined and thicker on a 1985 version.

    I hope that helped.
