Long anticipated book "The Order of the Red Star" . Subtitled "The History of Institution of the Award and the Evolution of Its Badge, Awarded Cavaliers". Valeriy Durov, Nikolay Strekalov, C. 2008, Moscow. "Collector's Books" series. Hard covered, 334 pp, hundreds of color photographs. Phenomenal book covering one of the most decorated order of the USSR. In detail cover some of its variations that are virtually unobtainable to even the most advanced collectors. At the same time, the more common versions of the Red Star are well known even to the beginners and are usually within easy reach. Photos in many reference books on medals and badges are of low quality, and only a few have satisfactory close-ups. This publication sets an entirely new standard, with large number of magnified photos in exceptional detail. Special attention is given to mint marks, maker stamps, die characteristics and idiosyncrasies. Another great plus is systematic approach which makes this work so easy to use and reliable. The authors organized it chronologically, starting with the first, types of the Young Post Revolution Russia. Serial number ranges for each variation are accompanied by reference photos. Explanation even slightest differences between variations and sub variations. . In addendum, there are tables with precise measurements of the order, material, production numbers by the mint location, dates of manufacture, awarded number and detailed data on mint remakes and duplicates. By far the best book available on the subject.
