    $1,400.00 Order of the Red Banner of Russian Federation, Type 1, #11636, circa mid to late 1920s. Most of the red enamel has been replaced. This is nevertheless an attractive piece; its condition is typical for the combat award of Civil War period.

    $12,000.00 Large certificate for Honorary Revolutionary Weapon, a sword with the Order of the Red Banner of RSFSR inserted in the handle. One of only 21 Revolutionary Honor Edged Weapons ever issued.

    $995.00 Large certificate for Order of the Red Banner of RSFSR, issued on 4 November 1924 to Commander of the 172nd Rifle Regiment. Archivally mounted on linen and handsomely framed.

    $1,750.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 1, Var. 2, Sub-var. 2 ("Mirror Reverse"), #7286, awarded in December 1939 to a Politruk (junior political officer) of an infantry unit for the Battle of Khalkhin Gol. Very uncommon award, one of only 595 Red Banners issued for the series of battles against the Japanese in June - September 1939 (known in the West as Nomonhan Incident). In fine condition. Includes archival research.

    $1,600.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 2, Var. 3 (screw back), #40568, awarded to the Politruk of a tank support submachine-gunners company in a tank brigade of the Kalinin Front. In August 1942, he showed exceptional bravery during the offensive at Rzhev. He replaced a fallen commander of one of the platoons and despite being wounded himself, personally led an infantry charge thus ensuring the success for his entire company. The order is in very fine condition, a very attractive piece - far better than vast majority of surviving Red Banner screw backs. Comes with complete archival research.

    $1,400.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 2, Var. 3, Sub-var. 1 (Strekalov classification), #63182, November 1944 issue to a Quartermaster Colonel of the Leningrad Front. This is a length of service award, highly unusual for a screw back type Red Banner and possibly the latest known date of issue for a Type 2. The order is in very fine condition, outstanding for a screw back type, and has never been converted to a suspension. Includes comprehensive archival research containing nice photos of the recipient.

    $1,800.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 2, Var. 3, Sub-var. 1, #67393, awarded in March 1943 to an Il-2 "Shturmovik" pilot, for flying a large number of ground attack missions in the battle of Stalingrad. Earlier in the war, he served as an SB bomber squadron commander. He was shot down by Messerschmitt Bf-109 fighters on his first mission of the war in August 1941, bailed out with a parachute over enemy territory, avoided capture, and soon made it back to his unit. He then flew a large number of highly successful bombing missions and in October 1941, was recommended for the Title of Hero of the Soviet Union. This first award recommendation however was processed with a significant delay and resulted in a Red Banner award. The order was never converted to suspension and is in very fine condition, outstanding for a screw back Red Banner. A really fascinating award to a truly heroic pilot. Comes with archival research.

    $1,600.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 3, Var. 2 (Strekalov classification), so-called "Coat Hanger" Krasnokamsk Mint conversion from screw back, #63178. Awarded in November 1944 to a Quartermaster Colonel of the Leningrad Front. Comes with archival research. An extremely rare and desirable variation.

    $325.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 4, Var. 1 (Type 3 Var. 1 according to McDaniel classification), #163106, circa late 1944 issue. Beautiful wartime example in outstanding, excellent condition.

    $840.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 4, Var. 1, #106438, awarded to a Guards Armored Corps Sergeant, a T-34 Tank Crewman. During the April 1944 offensive in Crimea, his tank led the Soviet spearhead and captured a key German stronghold on the Isthmus of Perekop thus unlocking the path into the Crimean interior. Within 3 days, he with his tank crew destroyed an enemy tank, 18 field guns, 27 mortars, and 57 machine guns. On several occasions he showed "exceptional heroism" by getting out of the tank to guide it through antitank obstacles under murderous enemy fire. Comes with archival research and translation. It is worth mentioning that the commander and driver of his tank received the Title of Hero of the Soviet Union for the same feats, and the events are described in even greater detail in their recommendations for a Hero Star (a copy of which is also included). The order is in fine to very fine condition.

    $270.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 4, Var. 2, Sub-var. 3 (with "large" mint mark), #208988, circa early 1945 issue. An interesting WW2 example in very fine condition.

    $295.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 5 Variation 1 ("Valik"), #346116, circa 1950. A scarce and distinctive version. In excellent condition.

    $330.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 5, Var. 3, Sub-var. 3, #549269. One of the last Orders of the Red Banner ever manufactured. In excellent condition.

    $6,500.00 Order of the Red Banner, 2nd award, Type 2, Var. 2 (Monetnyi Dvor screw back), #2395, August 1943 issue to a bomber pilot and commander of a night bomber regiment. He flew a total of 254 combat missions - many of them in support of the Soviet ground troops during the battle of Kursk. The order is fine to very fine condition, with minor repairs to enamel but never converted to suspension. Comes with comprehensive archival research and English translation.

    $950.00 Order of the Red Banner, 2nd award, Type 5, Var. 2, #29122, circa late 1950s issue. In excellent condition.

    $45.00 "The Order of the Red Banner" Durov, Strekalov, C. 2006, Moscow, Russian text. This landmark reference is a required reading for the serious collector of Soviet awards and is unlikely to be surpassed.
