The decree of June 19, 1943 established the transition to a new system for attaching many orders, including the Order of the Red Banner.
However, by the time this Decree was issued, the Krasnokamsky Mint still had a certain number of orders of the second type already manufactured with screw fastening. It was decided to redo these signs for wearing on the block, in accordance with the text of the Decree.
Alteration was carried out by removing a segment of the reverse surface (without damaging the enamel on the obverse) and replacing it with a segment similar in shape, having an eye for attaching a suspension block. The segment with the eye was fastened by soldering. This option is called by some collectors "dovetail" or "swallow". The vast majority of these signs were stamped with two separate stamps and the word "COIN" was rounded up in an arc (similar to Type 2, Option 3). The minimum known number for such signs is 77483, the maximum is 84243.The number is cut on some signs of this variant.
