Question about Albanian Hero of Socialist Labour


Recommended Posts

I guess a reasonable guesstimate of nr of awarding could be made by taking a multiple of the nr of 'regular' Hero of Albania titles which were awarded (the nr is mentioned elsewhere in a thread - i vaguely recall it was around 100).

Yes, and without accurate data we'd need to guesstimate

The nr of regular Hero's is around 100

My guess is the nr of Hero of Socialist Labour would be 400-600

Hi all,

There is a list of 170 decorations of "Hero i Popullit" and another of about 485 decorations of "Hero i Punes Socialiste". 

There is no "depot stock" for these decorations.
From those data, a discount of about 20% should be made, which is given only the diploma not accompanied by the respective medal. Another discount of about 20%, must be made for melted medals.
Thus, I believe that there should be about 100 People's Hero and about 350 Socialist Labor Hero.

Regards,

Zaim

(ps. attach the collection of a friend of mine)

Great post / pic!

"From those data, a discount of about 20% should be made, which is given only the diploma not accompanied by the respective medal. " - any idea of why this would happen (eg. posthumous awardings?)

Quite an impressive collection your friend has. I have a few Hero's but ever was able to see that many Hero of Labor stars which always surprised me as more of those would have been awarded.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. 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. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
