    Order of the Red Star
    $990.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 3, Var. 2, Sub-Var. 2 ("Large MONDVOR" version), #3931, awarded on 22 February 1938 to a major with 20 years of service in the Red Army. Later, in July - August 1941 the recipient of the award commanded a regiment in some of the earliest battles of the Patriotic War, was severely wounded in combat, and belatedly decorated with a Medal for Valor in June 1945 (by then already having the rank of Colonel.) The award is in good to fine condition, missing some of the enamel but still showing spectacular quality characteristic of the early Orders of the Red Stars. Comes with archival research.

    $525.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 4 Var. 3 (with screw post base), #214664, awarded in July 1943 to a staff officer of the 39th Tank Brigade for outstanding leadership and personal bravery in the Izum-Barvenkovo Operation, the spoiling offensive in Donbass that prevented the Germans from sending reinforcements to their hard-pressed forces engaged in the Battle of Kursk. The offensive was otherwise largely unsuccessful and very costly on the Soviet side, so the awards for this operation are scarce. The order is in very fine to excellent condition - an extremely attractive mid-war piece free of significant flaws - and includes original silver screw plate. Comes with archival research.

    $130.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Var. 2 ("MZPP"), #1851501, circa early to mid-1945. A relatively scarce piece from the first series produced by the Moscow Platinpribor Factory (MZPP). In very fine condition.

    $150.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Var. 3, Sub-var. 1, #695256, circa mid- to late-1944. Beautiful early piece with uncommon grainy reverse. In very fine condition, showing wear but free of significant flaws. Includes original screw plate in silver. Unlike majority of the Red Stars issued later in the war, it is much more likely to be for combat than length of service.

    $1,200.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 7, Var. 2, #3395921, with a document, issued for playing active role in crushing the Hungarian revolution in 1956. The award recipient, deputy commander of a mechanized regiment, led a successful armored attack on an airfield near Budapest as well as the capture of key installations in the town of Mosonmagyaróvár near Austrian border. This scarce award is a vivid reminder of one of the pivotal events of the Cold War. Comes with archival research. Both the award and the document are in near mint condition.

    $6,500.00 Order of the Red Star, counterfeit manufactured in Germany, #505342, circa 1943. This professionally made copy of the Order of the Red Star was intended specifically for Nazi infiltrators masquerading as Red Army servicemen. A documentary proof of existence of such counterfeits - along with photos - was found in recently declassified NKVD archives. Extremely rare piece.
