A very nice and early example of the Romanian Order of Labor, 3rd Class. This version is incribed "RPR" meaning "Republica Populară Romînă" or Romanian People's Republic. The RPR existed from 1947-1965 and was then replaced by the "RSR" or "Republica Socialistă România" or Socialist Republic of Romania. The award and ribbon bar are present in their original award box. Both are pinbacked and have a working pin and catch.
