    Order of the Republic, 1st class (with gold wreath), 1963 version in silver, circa 1960s-70s.

    Order of the Republic, 1st class (with gold wreath), 1963 version in silver, circa 1960s-70s.

    In silver gilt, enamels, synthetic rubies and brilliants (imitation diamonds). Multi-piece construction: the gold state emblem and center disc with wreath are separate pieces superimposed on the white starburst. Measures 44.9 mm in height, 47.1 mm in width; weighs 34.7 grams. This is the 1963 version of the award featuring seven flames in the torch (for the number of republics in the Yugoslav Federation). Unlike the questionable "late issues" in brass, this piece has five individually set red stones in each of the stars between the arms. The small openings behind the stones visible on the reverse were apparently designed to allow natural light shine through thus enhancing the brilliance of the stones. A very intricately made and attractive decoration!

    Condition is very fine overall. The white enamel on the arms of the star has surface wear and barely noticeably hairline fractures; the enamel however appears perfectly sound and has no chips or glaring damage. All the red and white stones are present and firmly attached. The silver shows patina, especially on the reverse, but the original fire finish is still clearly visible on all parts of the badge. The pin attachment and lock are fully functional.

    Only 1150 of all versions of the Yugoslav Order of the Republic 1st cl. had been awarded until its abolition in 1986.
