Order of the Badge of Honor, Type 2, Variation 5, #29438, circa early 1943 issue.
Silver gilt, enamels; measures 46.3 mm in height x 33.1 mm in width; weighs 36.8 g without screw plate. Riveted multi- piece construction. Sub-variation with serial number engraved below the mint mark. The mint mark is in slightly curved up lines.
In excellent condition, absolutely outstanding for a wartime issue. The enamel is completely flawless, free of any wear or even the tiniest contact marks that could be found under a 10x loupe. The original gilt on the letters "CCCP" is pale but still clearly visible. The figures of the workers have only a few miniscule scratches and contact marks that are practically unnoticeable to the naked eye; their raised details are perfect and extremely crisp. The reverse shows very attractive even toning to silver. The rivets are intact and tight. The screw post is full length, nearly 10 mm long measured from its base. Original silver screw plate is included.
Overall, this is an exceptionally attractive piece from early to mid-Patriotic War period - very uncommon in such a superb condition.
