    Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Variation 2 ("MZPP"), #1851501, circa early to mid-1945.

    Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Variation 2 ("MZPP"), #1851501, circa early to mid-1945.

    Silver, enamels; 46.8 mm tall x 48.8 mm wide; weighs 29.4 g not including the screw plate. This piece is a relatively scarce version manufactured in 1945 at the Moscow Platinpribor Factory (MZPP). It is from the first, smaller MZPP series, with serial numbers 1792001 through 195000. Features characteristically sloppy serial number engraving and very small font of the "Monetnyi Dvor" mint mark which is stamped in straight lines. Unlike some other specimens from this series, the bayonet of the soldier's rifle is of regular length, not "puncturing" the inner band of the medallion. The reverse is relatively flat, without a depression in its lower part.

    In very fine condition. The enamel shows magnificent luster. There is a surface flake at the tip of the top arm, another miniscule flake near the tip of the upper left arm (the latter is practically unnoticeable to the naked eye) and a few microscopic contact marks, but no chips penetrating to silver, significant scratches or other glaring flaws. The center medallion exhibits mild wear to the highest points and has a few tiny scratches on the background, its details remain well-preserved and crisp. Attractive even toning to silver on both sides. The screw post is full length, approx. 12.5 mm, and includes original WW2 era screw plate.
