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.

Variation III has a flat reverse and the makers mark was struck with 2 dies (causing the markers mark to look off balance). Serial numbers range from 287,000 to 333,000 for this variation.

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