    Order of the Badge of Honor, Type 3, Variation 3, #164626, circa early 1950s.

    Order of the Badge of Honor, Type 3, Variation 3, #164626, circa early 1950s.

    Silver gilt, enamels; 50.1 mm tall (incl. the eyelet); 33.3 mm wide; weighs 35.5 g not including the suspension and connecting link. This very uncommon "flat back" version features more "adult-like" proportions of the male and female workers' bodies and heads, same as on the later "hollow back" issues. Note also that the man's shirt has a rounded neck opening rather than square one like on all the earlier "flat backs". According to the Mondvor.narod.ru classification, this is Type 3 Var. 5 Sub-var. 2, with the currently known serial number range of less than 10 thousand issues, 160094 through 169458.

    In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect, free of even microscopic contact marks that could be found under a 10x loupe. The raised details are likewise pristine. Very attractive dark patina to silver on either side. Comes on original suspension, a post-war two-layer version in steel with integral catch of the pin. The perfectly preserved old ribbon is wrapped "in reverse" as is often the case. The connecting link appears to be original and its ends are still joined with solder.
