    Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl, Type 2 "Small" variation, #596251.

    Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl, Type 2 "Small" variation, #596251.

    Silver, 14 K gold, enamels. The outer dimensions are significantly smaller than all other variations of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl.: 44.9 mm in height, 42.5 mm in width. This "Small" version by the Leningrad Mint is often referred to as "Fish Eye" ("Rybiy Glaz") by collectors in Russia. The center medallion diameter is approx. 24 mm. According to the currently available data (see Mondvor.narod.ru), this variation was manufactured in March 1945 and had 2 serial number ranges: approx. 479000 to 483000 and 580000 to 618000. Thus, not more than roughly 42-43 thousand have been produced; the "Small" variation is highly sought by collectors due to its very distinctive look.

    In very fine condition. The white band shows minor surface flaking and substantial rubbing. The red enamel on the arms has scratches and rubbing, probably from years of careless cleaning - and most likely by the recipient himself. The arms show no penetrating chips or significant flaking. The red center medallion is nearly perfect, with few tiny scratches and contact marks only. Nicely toned, clean reverse. The screw post is full length, over 13 mm. Comes with original WW2 era screw plate
