Large five-pointed silver star, each arm with a longer bifurcated ray continuing from a shorter, wider bifurcated ray, two points between each arm; the face with a circular silver central medallion imposed on an upright sword, a silver plaque in relief bearing the three-quarter length figures of three soldiers facing right, armed with a rifle, a spade and a heavy hammer respectively, all within a gilt-edged circular white enamel ring inscribed in gilt letters ‘JUGOSLOVENSKA NARODNA ARMIJA * ODBRANA OTADŽBINE’ (Yugoslav People’s Army * Defence of the Homeland); the reverse plain with silver hallmark, ‘900’ purity mark and maker’s mark of IKOM of Zagreb; with pin for wear; diameter 69.48mm (2.74 inches); a small old repair to inner upper central edge of the white enamel ring; with ribbon bar mounted for wear; in fitted embossed case of issue slightly loose at the hinge and with label residue on the upper part of the lid. The Order was instituted on 29 December 1951 in three classes and initially awarded to military who had distinguished themselves in the war against occupying Axis powers from 1941 to 1945. In 1961, the name of the Order was amended to the Order of the People’s Army, III class and we can thus date this example to the years 1951 to 1961. A good earlier example of a relatively rare order.
