Counter number


Type 6 Variation 2 R1
  Red Banner of Labour

Instituted on 7 September 1928 and awarded for exceptional service in scientific achievement, public or government service. This is t6 v2 with the hammer under the sickle on avers and "ring" on reverse. Quite common and due to mass production (about 1.2 million awarded) many variations (until 1943 it was a screwback).  Very intricate and practically forgery proof, made of silver with some gold plating.  Good condition - most excellent specimen but no document.  I have some spares - see the awards for exchange page!
