    Order of the Patriotic War 1st class, Type 2 Variation 2, #319305, circa 1960s issue.

    Order of the Patriotic War 1st class, Type 2 Variation 2, #319305, circa 1960s issue.

    In solid gold (14 K), sterling silver and enamels; measures 46.7 mm in height, 44.0 mm in width; weighs 32.2 g without screw plate. Features a two-line mint mark. The spokes on the reverse of the golden sunburst are at 2, 6 and 10 o'clock positions.

    In excellent condition. The enamel is nearly pristine and shows magnificent luster throughout; the only sign of wear are a few tiny contact marks, plus a couple of microscopic flakes at the edges of the upper arms that are completely unnoticeable without a magnifying glass. The details of the golden starburst are perfect, and the silver plating on the rifle and sword is beautifully preserved. The screw post is full length, over 12 mm long measured from the reverse of the gold starburst. Comes with original screw plate of late war - early post-war type.

    This is an interesting piece, undoubtedly a "catch-up award" bestowed for WW2 exploits but awarded long after the war, possibly in mid-60s to mark the 20th anniversary of victory. Although a relatively late issue, it is still a WW2 type in solid gold and silver, not one of the mass issues of 1985 "jubilee" type. This order has a good research potential (we haven't tried to research it and are leaving it up to the new owner.)
