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!

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
