    $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!

    $225.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2, Var. 1, #436169, awarded in August 1944 to an antitank rifle operator in the 4th Guards Kuban Cossack Cavalry Corps, 1st Belorussian Front. On a single day in August 1944 he destroyed a German weapon nest with his PTR rifle and killed 16 Nazi soldiers with submachine gun at point blank range. The award is in very fine to excellent condition and 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.

    $120.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2 Var. 1, #330201, circa 1945. "Smooth" clock face sub-variation in very fine to excellent condition. Includes original suspension.

    $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.
