Oval silver, silver-gilt and enamel order with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a full-length male and female worker imposed, each holding a red enamel banner, the male with his right fist raised, the banners inscribed in gilt letters ‘ПРОЛЕТАРИИ ВСЕХ СТРАН, СОЕДИНЯЙТЕСЬ!’ (Proletárii vsex stran, sojedinjájtes! = Workers of the World, Unite!), the gilt letters ‘CCCP’ (= (for Sojus Sowjetskich Sozialistitscheskich Respublik = Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) imposed above, a five-pointed red star at the top. inscribed below in gilt letters ‘ЗНАК ПОЧЕТА’ (Badge of Honour), oak leaves to either side; the reverse concave, plain with maker’s mark ‘МОНЕТНЬІЙ ДВОР’ (for the Monetny Dvor of Leningrad) and numbered ‘589376’; on original somewhat grubby and worn ribbon and pentagonal hanger mounted for wear. The Order was instituted on 25 November 1935 as a civilian award for outstanding economic, technical, social and research achievements and for promoting such ties with other countries. The Order was superseded on 28 December 1988. A very good example.
