Orden Otechestvennoi voiny 2

The Order of the Patriotic War 2nd Class has three types. Type 1 has a rectangular suspension with a red ribbon and was produced from May 1942 until June 1943. This type consists of four parts. On the reverse of the suspension a screw is attached, but to avoid the order from swinging from side to side the first two variations also have a stick-pin soldered on the back of the rayed star. Type 2 was produced from June 1943 until 1969 and doesn’t have a suspension but a screwback. This type consists of three parts. There are nine remarkable reverse variations within this type.Type 3 was produced from 1984 until 1991. This type consists of two parts, has a gold-plated sickle and hammer and a raised mint mark.

Until the dissolution of the Soviet Union, a total of approximately 6.688.000 pieces of the 2nd Class were awarded, including approximately 5.729.000 1985 issues.
