    Order of the Star, 2nd Class, Type 2, 1987-1992.

    Order of the Star, 2nd Class, Type 2, 1987-1992.

    Nickel silver, gilt. 55mm wide. Large silver star with gilded center medallion showing the State emblem of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan. Shows single, stamped Dari character "2" (for the second class) on the reverse.

    Excellent condition. Comes with correct old ribbon, very nicely preserved, and original Soviet style suspension device.

    Established in 1980 and awarded for valor on the battlefield, mostly to Afghans, although few are known to have been issued to Russian advisers and other foreigners.

    The award was sequential: one had to be awarded with the third class of this order to become eligible to the second class. This requirement and the overall style of decoration make it very similar to the Soviet Order of Glory. /See "State Awards of Afghanistan", p.40/
