Estimated market value:
The Order was based upon the Order of Merit of the Hungarian Republic, in the Orders of the Republic of Hungary (1944-1949).
It was awarded to Hungarian citizens and foreigners in recognition of meritorious service in the realm of international co-operation, as well as for service to the Hungarian People’s Republic.
The awards may feature the emblem of the Hungarian People’s Republic from 1949-1957, or the emblem employed from 1957-1990.
Each of the higher ranking Order grade was awarded with an associated small grade, also known as Kleine Dekorationen or Small Orders. These decorations take the form of the V Class decoration, and feature a miniature version of the large decoration on the ribbon.
The Small IV Class was worn as a less formal version of the full-sized IV Class.
The Small IV Class has a miniature version of the IV Class decoration on the ribbon.
