    Order of Glory
    $7,900.00 Order of Glory, 1st class, #175, awarded in March 1943 to a junior sergeant for an infantry assault north of Warsaw. He was one of the first to jump into the enemy trench where he destroyed a machine gun, captured the trench and then on his own repelled a counterattack in which he killed over 20 German soldiers. This is one of the very few Orders of Glory 1st cl. bestowed not only before the end of WW2, but also well before the end of the Patriotic War (note its extremely low serial number). In fine condition, an attractive piece showing wear and combat character.

    $11,500.00 Order of Glory, 1st cl., #848. Awarded in May 1945 to a heroic reconnaissance scout Corporal of the 69th Army, 1st Belorussian Front. He earned the top Glory award in April 1945 at the Kustrin bridgehead, in the opening phase of the battle for Berlin (his other two Orders of Glory were for battles in the Gomel Region of Belorussia in December 1943 and on the Vistula River bridgehead near Radom, Poland, in January 1945.) The recipient had a total of 7 numbered decorations for the Patriotic War - an extremely large number for a junior NCO. The order is in superb condition - one of the best we have seen and absolutely extraordinary for a Glory 1st cl. of WW2 issue. Comes with copies of the award recommendations.

    $850.00 Order of Glory, 2nd cl, Type 2 ("thin"), #10665, February 1945 issue to an artillery sergeant in a Guards Cavalry unit. During the offensive in East Prussia he commanded a gun crew that within two days destroyed two German military trucks, wiped out a machine-gun nest, and eliminated 25 German soldiers. It is interesting to note that the fighting took place on approaches to Tannenburg, the same area where Russian Imperial Army suffered a catastrophic defeat in 1914. The outcome of course would be very different in 1945. The order is in very fine condition. Comes with archival research.

    $750.00 Order of Glory, 2nd cl., Type 3, #24084, awarded to a Sergeant Major of the Guards Artillery, 1st Belorussian Front. A veteran of the battle of Stalingrad, liberation of Odessa, and forced crossings of the Dnieper, Vistula and Oder, he had been previously awarded with two Medals for Valor and Order of Glory, 3rd cl. He earned the Glory 2nd cl. on the first days of the battle for Berlin by destroying eight German machine- guns, two pillboxes, and large number of infantry near Seelow Heights. The order is in fine to very fine condition. Includes archival research.

    $995.00 Group of two Orders of Glory, 2nd and 3rd cl. to a Guards Artillery NCO, a Georgian national. The Glory 2nd cl. is an early Type 2 ("Thin" version). The orders are in very fine to excellent condition and come with archival research. The 3rd class was awarded for destroying a German tank near Lake Balaton in Hungary in December 1944, while the 2nd class was bestowed for disabling two enemy armored personnel carriers and two machine gun nests during the storming of Vienna in April 1945. A quintessential WW2 combat award group of a Soviet soldier!

    $125.00 Order of Glory, 3rd class, Type 2 Variation 1, #567106, circa mid- to late 1945. In excellent condition and includes original WW2 suspension.

    $295.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2, #23132, awarded in February 1944 to a Reconnaissance Scout for single-handedly destroying a German machine gun and its crew during a recon mission. Earlier in the war, this heroic soldier earned a Medal for Valor at Stalingrad (for ambushing a German convoy trying to break out of encirclement) and an Order of the Red Star in the Battle of Kursk (for killing 6 Nazi soldiers and destroying a motorcycle, among other things). The order is the early version of the Type 2 Glory 3rd cl., with extremely low serial number. In very fine to excellent condition, an attractive piece on original suspension. Comes with archival research.

    $230.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2, #76227, awarded in July 1944 to a signalman Private for repairing damaged telephone lines under enemy fire during the Soviet Bagration offensive in Belorussia. The order is in very fine to excellent condition, far better than average, especially for an Order of Glory of the relatively early issue. Note the extremely low serial number. Comes with archival research.

    $280.00 Complete Documented Group of 2 to a Combat Engineers Private. Includes Order of Glory 3rd cl. earned at Koenigsberg and a 1985 Order of the Patriotic War 1st cl. Comes with award commendation for the Order of Glory. Both awards are in excellent condition.

    $105.00 Order of Glory, 3rd class, #791788, circa 1970s. A belated award to a WW2 veteran. In near mint condition.

    $350.00 Complete Documented Group of two decorations to an Artillery Private of the Leningrad / 3rd Baltic Front. Includes a late 1944 Order of Glory 3rd cl. for combat in the Baltics and a Medal for Valor earned in April 1944 at Narva. Both awards were for destroying large number of German troops with artillery fire. This classic WW2 solder's group comes with order booklet and archival research.
