The creation of a sketch for the Order of the October Revolution was entrusted to the artist Valentin Prokhorovich Zaitsev, who developed models for many orders and medals. All the main state symbols of that time are involved in the composition: the red banner, the hammer and sickle, the five-pointed star and the legendary cruiser Aurora.
The Order of the October Revolution was made of precious metals, the main material was silver, and the crossed sickle and hammer were cast with the addition of gold, palladium and copper. Blackening was applied on top for decoration and protection. The badge was fastened with an eyelet to a block covered with scarlet silk with light blue stripes. It should be worn on the left side.
