    $975.00 Order of the Patriotic War, 1st cl., Type 2 Var. 1, #27914, circa September - October 1943 issue. An exceptionally scarce early version with very thin spokes on the reverse of the golden starburst and gold-plating on the reverse of the silver star. This is one of the first of the 1st class screw backs made after the change in design from the suspension type. In very fine condition.

    $1,195.00 Order of the Patriotic War 1st class, Type 2 Var. 1, #158601, awarded posthumously to a commander of an SU-76 self- propelled gun killed in action near Krakow in January 1945. The award commendation is among the most succinct we have seen. The order is in near mint condition, as would be expected of the award that was never worn (according to Soviet archival records, it was given "for safekeeping as memory" to the widow of the fallen hero.) Comes with archival research.

    $1,200.00 Order of the Patriotic War 1st cl., Type 2 Var. 2 (with two- line mint mark), #306931, with a document, awarded to a Guards Naval Infantry platoon commander. He earned the award in the heroic naval assault at Eltigen, Crimea in November 1943. After making a fighting march through the enemy-held territory and even seizing a part of the city of Kerch for a while, the surviving Soviet marines were eventually taken off by boats. Although ultimately unsuccessful, this operation becаme legendary in the Soviet Union and to this day remains a part of Russian naval infantry lore. Тhe award decree was issued in 1943, but the decoration and document were delivered to the recipient long after the war, in 1950s. The set includes a copy of the award recommendation from the Russian archives.

    $950.00 Order of the Patriotic War 1st cl., Type 2 Var. 2, #317985, with a 1972 order booklet, awarded to a machine gun platoon commander for bravery during an infantry assault in East Prussia. In a single skirmish, he prevented an ambush that threatened his unit, killed six Nazi soldiers, and suppressed two weapon nests. Although wounded, he chose to remain on the battlefield until the fighting was over. The award was officially bestowed in November 1944, but it was only delivered to him nearly three decades later. Both the order and the document are in near mint condition, simply impossible to upgrade. Comes with a copy of the award recommendation from the Russian archives.

    $675.00 Order of the Patriotic War 1st cl., Type 2 Var. 2 (with two-line mint mark), #319305, circa 1960s issue. In solid 14 K gold and silver. Although undoubtedly bestowed for WW2 exploits, this is a belated award issued long after the war but well before the Type 3 "jubilee" issue of 1985. A relatively uncommon piece in excellent condition.

    $65.00 Order of the Patriotic War 1st cl, Type 3, #726185, 1985 issue. Excellent example with beautifully preserved gilt and enamel.

    $1,400.00 Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl., Type 1, Var. 3, #19613, awarded in June 1943 to a military topographer of the Southwestern Front for his contribution in building fortified defense lines. A highly unusual award recommendation! The order has not been re-converted and includes complete original suspension device. In fine overall condition, an attractive piece despite some enamel damage and repair. Comes with archival research.

    $575.00 Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl, Type 2, #135209, early and uncommon "Starback" variation by the Krasnokamsk Mint. The order was awarded posthumously to a heroic Reconnaissance Scout Private who destroyed a German armored personnel carrier with a hand grenade and then lost his life while confronting a tank. An extremely rare decoration in very fine to excellent condition. Comes with archival research.

    $380.00 Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl, Type 2, "Starback" variation (Krasnokamsk Mint), #377453, awarded to a Guards NCO, a T-34 tank gunner with the 1st Belorussian Front. Operating in the lead detachment of his unit during the January 1945 offensive in Poland, he with his tank crew covered 500 km, crossed 4 rivers, and broke into a number of towns and villages. In just two weeks, his tank eliminated 60 enemy soldiers, destroyed 1 assault gun, 2 artillery pieces, and 2 mortars, and blew up 5 large weapon storage facilities. At the end of the offensive, this courageous tanker was seriously wounded in battle near Poznan. The order is in very fine to excellent condition, an attractive piece free of any serious flaws. Comes with archival research.

    $150.00 Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl, Type 2, "Starback" variation (Krasnokamsk Mint), #240417, circa late 1944. This piece manufactured by the Krasnokamsk Mint features faint pentagon "star" counter-relief. In very fine to excellent condition.

    $330.00 Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl, Type 2 "Trench Reverse" variation, #117519, circa mid-1944 issue. In fine to very fine condition. This very scarce version of the "Trench Reverse" (aka "Kanava") was produced in Leningrad soon after the siege.

    $320.00 Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl., Type 2, concave reverse variation (Leningrad Mint), #437492, with a document, awarded on 6 May 1945 to a commander of Combat Engineers platoon with the 1st Belorussian Front, a Kirgiz national. He showed exceptional bravery in the opening days of the Battle for Berlin when he under enemy fire cleared passes in minefields near the Seelow Heights for the Soviet armor. He also accompanied a group of scouts on a daring raid on enemy military warehouses where he and his team rendered useless a large number of Panzerfausts and rifles. In this action, he destroyed a machinegun nest with its crew when crossing the front line. The order is in excellent condition, a very attractive and distinctive "deep dish" version. Comes with a copy of the award commendation that is truly extraordinary for an award of this level.

    $280.00 Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl, Type 2 "Small" variation, #617161, circa early to mid 1945 issue. An interesting specimen with the serial number near the upper limit of its version.
