The Soviet Order of the Red Banner of Labour was an order of the Soviet Union established on December 28, 1920, to honour great deeds and services to the Soviet state and society in the fields of production, science, culture, literature, the arts, education, health, social and other spheres of labour activities.
A very nice original Order of the Red Banner of Labour, complete with matching award booklet named to Nikolai Dmitrievich Kotov, dated 1966. This is a Type 6, Variation 2, indicated by the sickle blade running over the hammer. Some staining is present on the ribbon and visible in photos. Enamel is in good condition, with the exception of damage to the red star at the 6 o'clock position of the order which is visible in photos.
