Order of the Star of Romania, V Class Decoration (version 1)
Estimated market value:
The Order of the Star of Romania was established in 1948 and remained the highest decoration conferred in Socialist Romania until it was permanently suppressed following the collapse of the communist regime in 1989. It was conferred upon Romanian civilians and military personnel in recognition of merit in a variety of fields including politics, social service, science, and culture.
Recipients of the V Class were granted a monetary award of 1000 lei (250 USD).
There are four versions of the V Class Decoration. The first is a badge while all others are breast stars. The second version features the letters “RPR” above the centre medallion, but the other versions do not feature letters surmounting the medallion and differ in the inscription contained within the crest on the medallion.
There may be additional versions of the V Class Decoration that differ in size or composition.
