    Order of the Star, 1st Class, Type 2, 1987-1992.

    Order of the Star, 1st Class, Type 2, 1987-1992.

    Nickel silver, gilt. Measures Width 56.2 mm in height (incl. eyelet), 54.5 mm in width, weighs 19.1 g without the suspension and connecting link. Features the late version of the state emblem of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan, without the book. The reverse shows stamped Dari / Pashto character "1" for the first class.

    In excellent, near mint condition. The gilt finish is extremely bright and practically pristine on both sides. The raised details of the center medallion are perfect and beautifully crisp, show no wear. Comes with correct new ribbon.

    The order was established in 1980. 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. It also explains the rarity of the Fist class.
