    Heroes of the Soviet Union
    $9,950.00 Group of 2 Awards to a Hero of the Soviet Union Guards NCO, a reconnaissance scout squad leader. During the forced crossing of the Dnieper near Nikopol, he with his squad were the first to reach the enemy held bank. In the battle on the bridgehead, they repelled numerous counterattacks and provided vital fire support to the other Soviet troops crossing the river. He and his scouts then broke into the enemy rear area where they destroyed a command post killing 13 German enlisted men and 8 officers. After the war, the recipient finished the Kharkov Law Institute, earned doctoral degree in law science, and became a very prominent professor of law and department head in his alma mater.

    The group includes his Gold Star Medal and the Order of Lenin issued with it. The Hero Star is in very fine condition and comes on original suspension (albeit with a replica screw plate); the Lenin is in fine to very fine condition. A significant Hero group to an extremely interesting person!

    $1,500.00 Large certificate for the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, issued to a submarine boatswain. His submarine L-4 made 25 successful sorties in the Black Sea - many of them assisting in the defense of Sevastopol - and sunk seven enemy ships, a staggering total by the standards of the Soviet navy. The 1945 document is hand-signed by Chairman Kalinin. The certificate is in very good to excellent condition and comes complete with its original hard folder. Included are a photocopy of the award commendation and an article about the recipient in the catalog "Heroes of the Soviet Union" (the latter has his photo).
