Need Help with Russian Medals

Recommended Posts

I was told that the shorter the number engraved in the back of medal means it has more value to it? Is that true??


I appreciate any info on this topic. If you have any historical facts on this Medal it would also be very helpful.


Thank you in advance!

This is the Order of the Red Star, established in 1930. It was awarded more than 3,8 million times so it is rather common. The number on the reverse makes it possible to find out who the receiver of the actual medal was.


You will fins a lot of info if you google "Order of the Red Star".
