    Order of the Red Banner of Labor, Type 3, Variation 1 "jumbo", #28849, circa 1945.

    Order of the Red Banner of Labor, Type 3, Variation 1 "jumbo", #28849, circa 1945.

    Silver gilt, enamels; measures 51.1 mm in height including the eyelet, 38.0 mm width.

    The mint mark is in relatively tall font, in straight lines, approximately 8.5 mm in width. Based on currently available research information, these features are unique to the small series of the Red Banners of Labor with the serial number range of 26261 - 30120, manufactured at the Leningrad Mint in 1944. This piece is among the earliest versions of the suspension type Red Banner of Labor, and unlike most, it was either awarded during WW2 or at the very least for wartime achievements in the first months after the war.

    Excellent condition. The enamel has a couple of microscopic flakes on the upper edge of the banner that are completely unnoticeable to the unaided eye (and can barely be found even with a 10 x loupe), otherwise perfect. The gilt is nicely preserved showing only light wear to the high points of the wreath. Comes with original suspension, a WW2 model in steel with self-locking pin. The very attractive old ribbon is old and faded but completely sound. Note that it is wrapped "in reverse" as is often the case with older ribbons. Overall, this is a beautiful example of the very scarce version of the Red Banner of Labor.
