    Chollima Honor Prize, Type 3, late 1960s - early 1970s.

    Chollima Honor Prize, Type 3, late 1960s - early 1970s.

    48.2 x 40.1mm. Silver-plated and gilded brass, enamels, pin back. Smooth reverse; no serial number and no line for one.

    Very fine condition; the enamel is intact with the exception of one tiny chip on the right arm of the star (please see photograph). Under magnification, the enamel shows some very light scratches as well as a few tiny pockmarks that were a side product of the firing process, virtually unnoticeable to the naked eye. While dark, the original finish is generally well preserved. The reverse shows a few scratches where someone tried to "test" the metal content.

    The prize was issued for just a short time starting in 1968, and only a few were awarded. For unknown reasons, it was later canceled, and even mentioning it is now considered taboo by North Korean officials. Reportedly, if asked, they deny that it ever existed.

    /See page 81 in "Military and Civil Awards of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)" by Sessler and McDaniel/
