    Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd class, Type 2 ring reverse variation (Moscow Mint), #970939.

    Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd class, Type 2 ring reverse variation (Moscow Mint), #970939.

    Silver, 14 K gold (hammer & sickle emblem), enamels; 45.3 mm tall x 43.5 mm wide. One of the last of the Type 2 issued prior to the change to the simplified Type 3 in 1985. Note very high serial number engraved with rotating tool. This specimen is a late sub-variation of the ring reverse version, featuring a well-defined circular depression to the reverse measuring approx. 21-22 mm diameter. This specimen is from the series produced by the Moscow Mint in 1968-69. It could be issued a war veteran at any point between 1968 and 1985 but the most likely basis for the award was a hitherto forgotten, WW2 era award decree.

    In excellent condition. There is a single small scratch to the upper arm of the star; the enamels are essentially perfect otherwise, showing beautiful luster and having only a couple of microscopic contact marks, no flaking or other visible wear. Very attractive toning to silver on bother the obverse and reverse. The screw post is full length, approximately 11 mm.
