Silvered metal five-pointed star, each arm consisting of five graduated rays, with three graduated rays between each arm, all imposed on a grooved circular plaque; the face with a circular silvered metal medallion with a central red enamel rayed medallion bearing the gilt arms of the Socialist Republic of Romania, all within a circular laurel wreath; the reverse with pin for wear; height 60.15mm (2.37 inches); weight 45.13 grams (1.59oz). The Order of the Star of Romania has a long history, being founded originally as a royal order on 10 May 1877, one of the first acts of the newly independent Romanian principality, to reward outstanding military and civil service to the state. After World War II, the new Communist regime instituted its successor in 1948 as the Order of the Star of the Romanian People's Republic (Ordinul Steaua Republicii Populare Romîne), the country’s most senior decoration, as a political award for public servants, diplomats, members of the ruling party and social and cultural personalities for achievements in establishing close relations with Romania’s Communist allies. The name of the Order was changed in 1966 following the change of name of the Republic soon after the accession to power of Nicolae Ceauşescu. A new version of the Order (as the Order of the Star of Romania) was established in 1990 after the overthrow of the Communist regime. A very good example of a rare award.
