    Order of Sukhbaatar, Type 1, #296, 1959-61 issue.

    Order of Sukhbaatar, Type 1, #296, 1959-61 issue.

    Solid 23 K gold (star), platinum (bas-relief), sterling silver (enameled starburst) and enamels. Measures 52.8 mm in height, 50.2 mm in width. Weighs 56.1 grams without screw plate.

    The gold star is superimposed on a sunburst of blue enamel, with gray circle in the center and superimposed platinum bust of Sukhbaatar (aka Sukhe-Bator), Mongolian revolutionary leader; above the portrait is a red flag with Sukhe Bator's name in Cyrillic. Features Type 1 screw back attachment. According to "The Orders and Medals of the Mongolian People's Republic" by Khuujii Urnukh, this particular specimen was part of the small series of 300 pc manufactured in 1956 at the Moscow Mint.

    In very fine to excellent condition. The enamel is well preserved overall. There are a couple of tiny surface flakes to the upper edge of the red banner at approximately 12 o'clock - not easily noticeable. Besides that, the enamel has only a few microscopic contact marks that are completely invisible without magnification. There is no buffing or significant scratches, and the enamel fully retains its magnificent translucency and luster.

    The platinum bas-relief portrait of Sukhe-Bator shows surface wear, but its details are very well defined. The golden star has only minor dings near the edges and occasional light scratches, no significant wear. The reverse is pristine, with very attractive and even toning to silver. The rivets are tight. The screw post is full length, approx. 18 mm long, and includes period screw plate.

    Order of Sukhbaatar was the highest decoration of Mongolian Peoples Republic, equivalent of the Soviet Order of Lenin. Only 800 of the Type 1 screw backs were ever produced.
