    Order of the Badge of Honor, Type 4 Variation 1, #177403, circa 1952-53.

    Order of the Badge of Honor, Type 4 Variation 1, #177403, circa 1952-53.

    Silver gilt, enamels; measures 50.3 mm in height incl. eyelet, 33.4 mm in width; weighs 33.2 g not including the suspension and connecting link. Scarce sub-variation featuring worker's coveralls without a belt and the serial number without the underline. This is one of the earliest of the "hollow back" Type 4 Badges of Honor, with a serial number just above the upper number limit for the "flat backs." Only several thousand specimens of this version were produced. Note an extremely low position of the serial number, characteristic of the earliest issues of this sub- variation.

    In outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel shows magnificent luster and appears perfect to the unaided eye; there are just a few microscopic contact marks completely invisible without magnification. There are a couple of dings to the last letter of the "CCCP", barely noticeable and not detractive. The figures of the workers are free of wear visible to the naked eye. The gilt on the lettering is perfect and bright. Comes on original suspension device in steel with beautifully preserved clean old ribbon. The connecting link appears to be original and its ends are soldered.

    Overall, this is a truly superb example of the scarce early version of the "hollow back" Badge of Honor.
