ORDER RED BANNER OF LABOR TYPE 3 VARIATION 2 Number 000985


Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen,

It recently came to light this Order of the Red Banner of Labor Type 3 variation 2, number 000985, with award document.

What is your opinion about ?

Awarded to Ivan Zukhov in Nov 1949 ( not family related to the Marshal of Soviet Union ), document printed in 1948.

Weight is 51 Grammes. The suspension ring had never been cut.

I'am tantalized, but I never saw a so low number on Red banner of Labor.

Regards.

    Emmanuel

Interesting piece. The serial number would indicate a screw back award, but this looks to be a Type 3, option 7 if I'm not mistaken (there are several variations that look similar) http://mondvor.narod.ru/ORbnLab2.htm

My guess is a replacement/duplicate award? the serial number engraving looks good to my eyes, but why add the '0's before the number 987?

 

I can't comment on the award booklet, those are a minefield to me.

I look forward to hearing other opinions on this!
