The Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky 3rd Class

The Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky 3rd class was commissioned on 10th October 1943.

The Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky 3rd class was awarded to lower officers and those of rank (including partisan units) who showed bravery and intelligent decision making that resulted in the victory of a battle.

In total five thousand seven hundred and thirty eight 3rd class orders were awarded.

The third class order has the star formation of the 2nd and 1st class orders but the stars points are smaller and have a more rounded point. The central plate is silver and also larger than that of the higher 2nd and 1st class orders.

Type 1 – Variation one – Rare and difficult to find. This type is made from a three piece construction with a soldered screw back and seam around the central plate.

Type 2 – Variation one – Scarce, almost rare so not easily available. Same in design to type one but with a two piece construction rather than three. The central plate has a more flush appearance with the star formation of the order.

  1. Hey there I help run Collectors' Quest and this week I am featuring people who collect all sorts of militaria and war relics. Collections include WWII, American Civil War and the Iraq war. I figured maybe you'd be interested in checking it out.
