ORDER 9TH OF SEPTEMBER 1944 1st class swords 46.49EURO

Instituted by decree, on September 9, 1945. Accordingly to the status of the order, it is given to the Bulgarian and foreign citizens, which took part in the armed insurrection of people on September 9, 1944 and also to the participants in “the foundation and consolidation of the people’s authority” 9. The order has three stages: first, second and third - and two categories: with swords, which is given to commanders and without swords, which is given to civilians. This order has three emissions. The first stage of the initial emission is made in the shape of outstanding star with five rays, which are framed by golden edging. The star has diameter 66 mm and is covered by white enamel. Swords with blades pointed to upwards and made of yellow metal are crossed between the rays of the star. Averse: in a golden inset is curved the bust of the great Bulgarian revolutionary Vasil Levsky. Its initials are disposed on the both sides of the inset: to the left “B”, and to the right “L”. There is wreath of laurel leafs in the surrounding green ring. Reverse: An inset covered by red enamel, which is surrounded by a wreath of laurel leafs. In the middle is the inscription “ 9/SEPT/1944”. The diameter of the second stage of the order is 60 mm. The inscription is disposed on the averse, in the green ring around the bust of Vasil Levsky. There are not any inscriptions and images on the reverse of the second stage. The third stage is almost the same as the second, but the enamel of the star is colored in wine - red and the inset is oxidized. The images upon the badges of the second emission repeat the images of the first emission, but the initials “B” and “L” are removed. Also there is an insignificant change in the image. In the third emission the head of Vasil Levsky is “en face” where as in the first and the second is turned to the right. There are differences in the way of wearing and in the ribbons of the orders of the three emissions. Accordingly to the initial status of the order - since 1944, the first stage is carried on a red ribbon and it is worn on the neck. The second and the third stage are carried over the left breast and the attachment is by a screw. The orders from the second emission are carried in the same way. The ribbon of the first stage of the third emission is colored in wine - red and it is garnished with white and green strip on the both edges. The ribbon of the second stage is red with thin azure strips in the middle and on the edges. The third stage is the same, but without azure strip in the middle. The orders of all the stages of this emission are carried over the left breast.
