    $2,950.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 3 Var. 2 "Large Mondvor" version, #7671, circa early 1940. This is almost for sure an award for the "Winter War" against Finland. An outstanding, excellent example - extremely uncommon among the Soviet military decorations of pre-Patriotic War vintage.

    $1,500.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 3 Var. 2 Sub-var. 2 ("Large Mondvor" version), #6099, awarded in January 1939 to a flight mechanic / engineer of a Soviet aviation unit deployed in north China. In 1937-39, he participated as a "volunteer" in the special secret mission assisting Chiang Kai-shek in fighting against the Japanese - a Soviet version of the U.S. Flying Tigers. In fine overall condition. Comes with original photo of the recipient and a copy of the service record. A highly unusual award!

    $1,400.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 4, Var. 1, Sub-var. 1, #11664, awarded in April 1940 to an artillery NCO for the "Winter War" against Finland. An extremely interesting early piece with the serial number below the standard range for the Type 4 "Monetnyi Dvor". In excellent condition, superb for any Red Star of pre-Patriotic War period, and includes original silver screw plate. Comes with basic archival research.

    $490.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 4, Var. 1, #22137, extremely early, October 1941 issue to a pilot and political commissar of a long range bomber regiment. The recipient later became a major general, and after his retirement in 1959 worked as senior advisor of the Soviet War Veterans Committee. Beautiful and scarce piece in very fine condition. Comes with archival research.

    $440.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 4 Var. 3, #47709, October 1942 issue to a mortar company commander. Awarded for actions in the late spring - summer 1942 on the Volkhov Front. The order is in very fine condition and comes with archival research.

    $495.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 4 Var. 3, #62003, awarded in June 1942 to a Major in NKVD Rifle Division who in January of that year lost a leg in combat near the besieged Leningrad. Uncommon, early Patriotic War issue in very fine to excellent condition. Comes with a color copy of the recipient's order booklet containing his photo, and a copy of the award recommendation and decree.

    $450.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 4 Var. 3 (with a screw post base), #89040, awarded in October 1942 to a Naval Infantry Recon Scout. He repeatedly distinguished himself in raids behind the enemy lines during the defense of Novorossiysk. The order is in very fine condition and comes with archival research.

    $395.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 4 Var. 3 (with a screw post base), #89588, December 1942 issue. Awarded to a Guards Sr. Sergeant of a Katyusha multiple rocket launcher unit (codenamed "guards mortars") for action against Finnish troops in Karelia. On 11 November 1942, he repaired several breaks in the telephone line to his unit's command post under artillery fire - and thus made a decisive contribution to repulsing an enemy attack. The Order of the Red Star remained his only decoration of the Patriotic War, at least as of 1946. The order is in very fine to excellent condition, and includes original silver screw plate. Comes with archival research.

    $395.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 4 Var. 3 (with a screw post base), #94296, awarded in January 1943 to a chief of radio communications of a Cavalry Division, Western Front. The award was primarily for maintaining a radio link between the division and its 2nd Guards Cavalry Corps during the cavalry raid of the German rear area near Rzhev in August 1942. In very fine to excellent condition. Comes with archival research.

    $550.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 4 Var. 3, #157531, awarded to a crewman of a railway-mounted naval gun for an extraordinary act of heroism during the defense of Leningrad. After a German artillery round struck the ammunition storage room of his gun, he selflessly discarded ammunition from the burning railcar. In so doing, he prevented the explosion of the magazine - and thus saved his gun and entire crew from imminent destruction. Later in the war, such a feat almost for sure would have resulted in a much higher award than a Red Star! The order is in superb condition. Comes with archival research.

    $190.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Var. 1, #288601, September 1943 issue to a Senior Lieutenant, Communist Party organizer of a mountain rifle regiment. He was awarded for setting a personal example during the summer offensive on the Blue Line (Taman Peninsula) and also for political indoctrination of the frontline troops. A relatively early piece with beautiful enamel and distinctive "chagrin" pattern on the reverse. In very fine to excellent condition. Includes archival research.

    $160.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6 Var. 1, #563001, awarded in April 1944 to an Infantry Private who was severely wounded in battle near the city of Tarnopol (aka Ternopil) in western Ukraine. In very fine condition, showing light wear but free of any significant damage. Comes with archival research.

    $120.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6 Var. 1, #676849, circa mid-1944 issue. Attractive early piece in very fine to excellent condition.

    $195.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Var. 2 ("MZPP"), #1793431, circa mid-1945 issue. This specimen is among the first ever made by the MZPP Factory and it features a larger font of the mint mark found on MZPP Red Stars in a tiny serial number range. An extremely uncommon piece in very fine to excellent condition.

    $90.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Variation 2 ("MZPP"), #1907764, circa mid- to late-1945. A relatively scarce piece from the first MZPP series. In very fine condition.

    $85.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Var. 3, Sub-var. 3, 1096075, circa late 1944 - early 1945 issue. In excellent condition, a very attractive wartime example.

    $185.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Var. 3, Sub-var. 5, #2784967, circa 1947-48 issue. Scarce version with "Attached Bayonet". This is an especially interesting specimen: it's serial number is outside the previously known serial number range shown in the reference guide "Order of the Red Star" by Durov and Strekalov. In excellent condition.

    $80.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 6, Var. 3, Sub-var. 6, #2815173, circa 1945-47 issue. In excellent condition.

    $130.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 7, Var. 1, #3130837, circa 1954 issue. Very interesting specimen: it has all the attributes of the Variation 1, while its serial number is well within the range for Variation 2. This is probably due to a mistake by the engraver at the mint. Scarce piece in excellent condition.

    $80.00 Order of the Red Star, Type 7, Var. 2, Sub-var. 2, #3313181, circa 1954-55 issue. Near mint example.

    $1,400.00 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.

    $220.00 Order of the Red Star, duplicate issue, #2562280. Featuring a serial number stamped in small font, this is a scarce official replacement award in exchange for a lost or severely damaged WW2 era original. In excellent 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.

    $75.00 "The Order of the Red Star" Subtitled "The History of Institution of the Award and the Evolution of Its Badge". Durov, Strekalov, C. 2008, Moscow, Russian text, large format, 334 pp. Another landmark reference that is required reading for serious collectors!
