Order of the Badge of Honor, Type 4, Variation 2, #1567795, circa mid-1980s issue.
Silver gilt, enamels; medallion measures 51.0 mm tall (incl. eyelet), 32.7 mm wide; weighs 31.7 g not including the suspension and connecting link. The medallion is single- piece construction, with letters "CCCP" struck as part of the badge - the distinguishing feature of the Variation 2. Note the extremely high serial number: among the highest observed for Order of Badge of Honor and well within the range for the 1988 Order of Honor.
In outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel is flawless. The letters and figures of the workers have only a few miniscule dings that are practically invisible to the naked eye, otherwise perfect. Very attractive toning to silver on both sides. Comes on original two-layer suspension device in aluminum with beautifully preserved, clean old ribbon. The connecting link appears to be original and its ends are still joined with solder. Overall, a superb piece!
