    Gold Medal of Labor Hero of DPRK, Type 2, Variation 5, circa 1950s-60s.

    Gold Medal of Labor Hero of DPRK, Type 2, Variation 5, circa 1950s-60s. Early screw back type.

    This is one of the early versions featuring a screw post which was replaced by pin back on later issues. Medallion measures 37.7 mm in height including the eyelet, 33.3 mm in width; weighs 19.7 g not including the suspension and connecting link; overall weight with suspension and screw plate is 35.2 g. The factor that determines this to be a Variation 5 is raised inscription on the reverse: its second character from the left in the top line has the bottom portion that is bent in a peculiar way unique to this version of the medal.

    In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect. There are some tiny contact marks to the silver parts, no significant wear. The gilt finish is partly obscured by attractive silver patina but still clearly visible, especially in recessed areas around the letters on the reverse. Comes with original and complete suspension device in silver with perfectly preserved old ribbon. Connecting link between the medallion and suspension is original and has not been cut. The screw post is full length, approx. 9 mm long measured from the back plate. The brass screw plate is original.

    This version of the Labor Hero Medal happens to be among the hardest to find, rated R4 for rarity according to the Sessler and McDaniel reference guide. /See page 61 in the "Military and Civil Awards of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)" by Sessler & McDaniel/
