    $14,600.00 Documented Group of Two: Order of Suvorov 3rd cl. #3143 and Order of Kutuzov 3rd cl. #7717 (rare version with serial number and mint mark at 6 o'clock), with the order booklet. Awarded to a rifle battalion commander. He was the first to cross the Bug River (marking the Soviet western frontier) in August 1944, and led an assault that carried three fortified German lines during the January 1945 offensive in Poland. For the former feat, he was recommended for the Title of Hero of the Soviet Union, but received "just" the Kutuzov 3rd cl. Both awards are in excellent condition. The group includes comprehensive archival research and English translation.

Awarded in August 1944 to a courageous artillery officer for destroying German tanks, artillery pieces and infantry, and repelling 8 counter-attacks near Lvov. In good overall condition, an attractive example despite partially restored enamel. Comes with complete archival research.

    $1,600.00 Order of Alexander Nevsky, Type 3, #37677, awarded in June 1945 to a Guards Artillery Captain. He earned the award during the February 1945 battles in Silesia.

Comes with a copy of award commendation and archival file which includes a nice photo of the recipient.

    $2,250.00 Order of Alexander Nevsky, Type 3, #39835, awarded to a junior lieutenant, Communist Youth Leader of a an infantry company, for his leadership and personal bravery in the Soviet August 1945 "Blitzkrieg" against Japan - which was his first military campaign. During the liquidation of a Japanese stronghold in Manchuria he assumed command over his company after its commander was killed in action and second- in-command wounded. The order is in excellent condition and comes with archival research. A Nevsky for the short Manchurian offensive is a highly uncommon award, especially to a low ranking officer who had no prior combat experience or decorations!
