In outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel is perfect, completely free of any wear visible even under a 10x magnification, and retains beautiful luster. The golden wreath and platinum bas-relief are likewise pristine, with exceptionally crisp details. The reverse has only some miniscule contact marks, no significant scratches or other wear. Comes on original suspension device, a two-layer model in aluminum with nicely preserved, clean old ribbon. The connecting link appears to be original; its ends are still joined with solder.

Overall, this is a superb example of the highest Soviet decoration - literally impossible to upgrade.
