The order is in outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel is perfect, free of even the microscopic contact marks, flakes, or other wear that could be found with a 10x loupe. The golden wreath is essentially pristine; the platinum bas-relieve has only a few microscopic contact marks completel

The medallion is in solid 23 K gold, platinum, and enamels; measures 44.5 mm in height (incl. eyelet), 38.2 mm in width, and weighs 32.8 g (not including the suspension and connecting link). This Leningrad Mint sub-variation features serial number stamped above the lower rivets.

The order is in outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel is perfect, free of even the microscopic contact marks, flakes, or other wear that could be found with a 10x loupe. The golden wreath is essentially pristine; the platinum bas-relieve has only a few microscopic contact marks completely invisible to the naked eye. The stippling on the reverse is perfect and beautifully defined.

The order comes on an original suspension device, a two-layer model in steel with integral catch of the pin. The old, probably original ribbon is perfectly preserved and immaculately clean. The connecting link appears to be original; its ends are still joined with solder in the characteristically seamless manner.

The order booklet filled-out on 14 May 1966 shows only a single entry for the Order of Lenin #338073 which was bestowed by a Supreme Soviet decree on 2 April 1966.

The order booklet is excellent, near mint condition. Neither the cover nor internal pages show any soiling or wear. To summarize, this is truly a perfect documented Order of Lenin - literally impossible to upgrade condition-wise!
