Order of the Red Banner of Labor, Type 5, Variation 2, "flat back with curved mint mark", #314037, circa 1954-55 issue.

Silver gilt, enamels; measures 47.5 mm in height (incl. eyelet), 37.3 mm in width; weighs 35.0 not including the suspension and connecting link. Based on available mint records, this specimen was manufactured in 1954 at the Leningrad Mint.

In excellent condition. The enamel is flawless with the exception of a few miniscule scratches and contact marks on the banner that are unnoticeable to the naked eye. There is no flaking, rubbing or other significant wear. The details of the artwork including the hammer & sickle emblem are perfect and crisp; the gilt finish is nicely preserved although partly obscured by silver patina. Comes on original suspension, a two-layer model in steel with integral catch of the pin. The ribbon is new. The connecting link appears to be original, and its ends are still joined with solder.
