Shield-shaped gilt bronze and red enamel badge of multi-part construction; the face with a radiant rising stippled orange sun centrally, the lower half imposed on a red enamel ribbon, the letters RSR centrally (for Republica Socialista România = Socialist Republic of Romania), a laurel wreath, ears of corn, a hammer and sickle and a small red enamel five-pointed star imposed below; the reverse plain with vertical pin for wear; height 46.7mm (1.84 inches), width 42.9mm (1.7 inches); with a ribbon bar mounted for wear; in original fitted embossed case of issue. The Order was instituted in 1948 in three classes to reward merit, especially in the field of work but in the event was awarded for achievement in a wide number of fields. In 1965, when the name of the state was changed to the Romanian Socialist Republic, the letters ‘RSR’ replaced ‘RPR’. Unlike many Communist-era eastern European awards, those of Romania are usually of good quality manufacture and this is a particularly fine example.
