    Order of the Star, 3rd Class, Type 1, 1980-1987.

    Order of the Star, 3rd Class, Type 1, 1980-1987.

    Nickel silver; measures 56.2 mm tall including the eyelet, 54.6 mm wide. Large silver star with center medallion showing the 1980-87 version of Afghanistan state emblem. Stamped Dari character "3" (for the third class) to the reverse.

    In excellent condition. Comes on original suspension device. The ribbon is for a different Afghan decoration but it looks very similar to the correct ribbon for the Order of the Star (Afghan award recipients often used generic instead of regulation ribbons).

    The order was established in 1980; it was awarded for valor on the battlefield, mostly to Afghans, although few are known to have been issued to Russian advisers and other foreigners. Abolished in 1992 with the fall of Soviet-backed Najibulla's government. The early version from the Soviet occupation period is quite hard to find. /See Tisov, Shirshov, "State Awards of Afghanistan", p.40/
