Yes, those are produced in IKOM ZAGREB, PRAWEMA and TIRANA.

If you have, and If you can, post some photos of your pieces.

Best regards.

Endri, I do not have much from the Socialist Albania. One of my posted pieces was this Red Star for which it would be interesting to get more information, if possible.

Order of Skanderbeg (Urdhёri i Skёnderbeut).

Named after 15th century Albanian national hero Gjergj Kastrioti, better known by his Ottoman name of Skanderbeg, the Order of Skanderbeg was established on October 13, 1945.
The order was awarded to officers of the Peoples Army and the Ministry of Internal Affairs as a reward for services to the country and the people for organization, modernization and reinforcement of the armed forces. The order is also conferred on citizens for labor that contributed to the reinforcement and modernization of the armed forces.
The order was awarded for distinguished activities and direction that resulted in the successful elevation of the combat readiness and preparedness of the army or military units; for excellent results in attaining military and political preparation; for excellent organization and leadership in the course of military instruction with troops or other officers; for accomplishments in particular duties that lead to the reinforcement of the power of the nation and combat preparedness of the army; for distinguished activity and just leadership that resulted in the elevation of the combat capacity and promptness of specialized units; and for accomplishments that lead to the reinforcement of the defense of the frontier and maintaining social order.

Until 1980, the order could also be awarded to officers and generals of the armed forces and Ministry of Internal Affairs for long and exemplary service:
1. The first class was given for 25 years service;
2. The second class was given for 20 years service; and
3. The third class was given for 15 years service.
The order was made out of silver, nickel silver or other white metal alloys. Some early IKOM made examples were made of silver. Some of the Präwema made examples of the first class were made out of an anodized alloy to impart the gold color.

First Class: Gilt or anodized alloy ten pointed star 48 mm across upon which is a red enameled star, at the center, a separately attached white metal medallion on a wreath with the helmeted idealized bust of Skanderbeg.
Type 1: Screw back

Var. 3: Made by Präwema

E' per me davvero interessantissimo vedere come la Tedesca PRAWEMA producesse questi ordini. La stessa fabbrica produrrà anche molti distintivi per nazioni Africane come l'Etiopia dopo la decolonizzazione.
