It also shows the pre-1957 version of the state emblem at obverse and has the date "1949" at the reverse. There is also some sort of maker's or manufacturer's mark applied near the base of the pin at the back of the star. The whole base of the star has a diameter of 70mm and perfect and intact enamel. The weight of the star is 78 grams. It was awarded to a top foreign official whose name we cannot share at the time being. LIFETIME GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC PIECE!!! We cannot find a single reference of a recent sale of this particular decoration and in general it is considered to be of highest collector importance.
