    Gold "Hammer and Sickle" Medal of a Hero of Socialist Labor, Type 2 Variation 2, #7063, circa mid-1950s.

    Gold "Hammer and Sickle" Medal of a Hero of Socialist Labor, Type 2 Variation 2, #7063, circa mid-1950s.

    The medallion is in solid 23 K gold; the suspension device is in silver gilt. The medallion measures 33.0 mm in height including the eyelet, 30.9 .6 mm in width; weighs 16.3 grams not including the suspension and connecting link; overall weight with suspension and screw plate is 28.8 g. The medallion is approx. 4.3 mm thick in its mid-section and averaging approx. 1.6 mm thick at the tips of the arm, a so- called "thin" sub-variation. The serial number is stamped in small numerals on the upper arm, a distinguishing feature of the Variation 2.

    In very fine to excellent condition. The obverse shows only mild wear to the ridges and tiny dings that are barely noticeable without a magnifying glass, no major flaws of any kind. The facets are nice and clean, the details of the hammer and sickle emblem remain beautifully crisp, and the edges of the star are free of significant bumps. The reverse has a few minor dings to the raised edge, some tiny contact marks and mild wear to the tips of the lower points of the star; otherwise nearly pristine with perfectly preserved stippling and lettering.

    Comes with original suspension device which includes the original rectangular back plate, hexagon nut and mint marked screw plate. The original gilt finish is pale but still visible on all parts of the suspension. The screw post is nearly 12 mm long measured from the rectangular screw plate, has not been cut. The ribbon old but perfectly preserved and clean. The connecting link appears to be original and its ends are soldered.

    Overall, a very attractive example of the highest Soviet decoration for labor achievements!
