The emblem of the SSR was introduced 23 March 1937 (according to Hesmer [hes92]) by the then constitution (Art. 115). It was replaced by the current emblem on 14 January 1994.
Marcus Schmöger, 16 Sep 2001

The star is “denser” in this version of the emblem, taken from an official soviet handbook publ. 1980 (SSSR — Administrativno-territorialhnoe Delenie Soûznyq Respublik).
António Martins, 09 Nov 2002

Before 1948, the coat-of-arms had no star.
