    Order of Glory
    $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.

    $1,300.00 Documented Group of Orders of Glory 2nd and 3rd cl. awarded to an Antitank Artillery Sergeant, commander of a 76-mm gun crew. He took part in the great tank engagement in Prokhorovka during the battle of Kursk and earned his first decoration, a Medal for Valor, in the Fourth Battle of Kharkov. His Order of Glory 3rd cl. was awarded for repelling a German attack in January 1944 in which he destroyed an enemy tank and up to a platoon of infantry, whereas the Glory 2nd cl. was for fighting off an enemy ambush in a nighttime action during the January 1945 offensive in Carpathian Mountains. This courageous soldier ended the war with a total of 5 decorations - an uncommonly large number for an NCO. The group includes comprehensive archival research and English translation.

    $180.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl, Type 2, Variation 1, #81474, circa mid-1944. Note the five-digit serial number. An uncommon early version in very fine to excellent condition.

    $95.00 Order of Glory, 3rd class, Type 2 Var. 1, #359793, circa late 1944 - early 1945. In very fine to excellent condition. An attractive late war piece on original 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.
