    Gold "Hammer and Sickle" Medal of Hero of Socialist Labor, Type 2 Variation 2, #5846, circa 1950s.

    Gold "Hammer and Sickle" Medal of Hero of Socialist Labor, Type 2 Variation 2, #5846, circa 1950s.

    The star is in solid 23 K gold; suspension device is in gilded silver. The pendant measures 33.0 mm in height including the eyelet, 30.7 mm in width; weighs 17.6 g not including the suspension and connecting link. The serial number is stamped in small numerals on the upper arm, a distinguishing feature of the Variation 2. This is a so- called "thin" sub-variation measuring 4.5 mm thick in the center and averaging approx. 2.1 mm thick at the tips of the arms.

    In very fine condition. The star shows two dings to the ridges of the lower arms and a few smaller contact marks and dings elsewhere. The ridges are however well defined and crisp; there is no excessive wear to the facets. The tips of the arms have the usual mild bumps from normal wear. The reverse has few minor edge knocks, couple of light scrapes and small contact marks (mostly to the top arm) but the stippling is well preserved and overall appearance is nice and clean.

    Comes with the original suspension device which includes original rectangular back plate and hexagon nut. The screw plate is missing and has been replaced with an expertly made reproduction in gilded silver (it precisely matches the original in size and quality). The original gold plating on the suspension and back plate is still visible, although it is partly obscured by silver patina. Includes nicely preserved old ribbon. The connecting link is original and has not been cut.
