History


This is the oldest Order of the Soviet Union. Existing first as an Order of the Russian Federation (established on September 16, 1918), it was converted into an Order of the USSR on August 1, 1924. The statute was not established until January 11, 1932. It was discontinued in 1991.

It was conferred for self-sacrifice, courage, and bravery in defending Russia. It was awarded to Army, Navy, Border Guard, and Internal Security personnel, as well as KGB employees and military ships. It may also be bestowed upon foreigners.

This version is very similar to the first type, except for a flat reverse construction. The obverse might also have the numbers 2,3, and 4 to denote subsequent awards. The only difference between variation I and II is the makers mark on variation I is in short form, while variation II is in long form.

The first variation was most likely only produced in 1941, and the serial number range was from 20,000 to 21, 300.

The obverse Russian inscription translates to: "Proletarians of the World, Unite!".
