Орден Отечественной войны. The Order of the Patriotic War was instituted May 20th 1942 and were awarded to officers and men of the Soviet army, navy, and to partisans for personal courage and bravery as well as to those who contributed to the success of an operation. It is a multi piece die struck silver base that has been gilded and contains red and white enamel work. The obverse features a centrally placed crossed hammer and sickle encircled by: “ОТЕЧЕСТВЕННАЯ ВОЙНА” (War of the Fatherland) and on top of a red enameled star, a crossed sword and rifle with fixed bayonet and rays. The reverse is Monetny Dvor mint marked and hand engraved “75973”. It features a male nut and screw piece with a female screwback piece. It measures 1 ¾ inches wide and tall. Very nice!
