Order of the March 5th Commemoration, circa late 1980s-1990s.
Gilded brass, 59.4 x 53.3 mm. Pin back construction. In
excellent condition. The gilt finish is very well preserved
and bright; has only tiny amount of wear to the high points of
the obverse and some minor blemishes on the reverse. The pin
attachment is fully functional.
Created to honor land reform ideas that occurred to beloved
Leader Kim Il Sung after a trip to the countryside in March of
1946. This was apparently a rather high award judging by the
fact that its quality is high compared with other contemporary
DPRK decorations. Relatively few have been awarded.
