    $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.

    $12,900.00 Gold Star Medal of Hero of the Soviet Union, #4898, with complete documentation including all three award documents: order booklet, Large Certificate for the Title of Hero, and Hero's ID (aka "Small Certificate"), as well as original issue box for the medal. Also included are McDaniel authentication on the Hero Star (showing 80% condition rating) and comprehensive archival research with English translation. Awarded in March 1945 to a Guards Infantry NCO. He was the first to force the Danube River in Hungary in December 1944 and showed extraordinary bravery in the battle for the bridgehead.

    $7,300.00 Complete Documented Group of Six Decorations to a Combat Engineer. Among the awards are Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky, 3rd cl., Type 1, #714 (bestowed on 6 November 1943, this is one of the very first issues of this order); Order of the Patriotic War 1st cl. on original Type 1 suspension, an early Order of the Red Star earned at Stalingrad, and an Order of the Red Banner. The award commendation for the Red Star specifically states that he distinguished himself in clearing paths in the enemy minefields during the liquidation of the Nazi troops surrounded in Stalingrad. The Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky was awarded for building pontoon bridges over the Dnieper River under enemy fire and personally commanding the crossing by two rifle corps in October 1943. This extremely interesting group comes with the order booklet containing a photo of the recipient as well as copies of award commendations for the four WW2 decorations (none of which are for length of service).

    $4,600.00 Group of 7 Decorations to Radio Communications Commander of a WW2 fighter air division. The group includes his WW2 Order of Lenin, two Orders of the Red Banner ("plain" and 2nd award), early Order of the Red Star (#23400), Medal for XX Anniversary of RKKA, and two other medals. Also included are the order booklet and three other awards documents - one of which is hand-signed by a Hero of the Soviet Union and another one by a general. Most awards are in superb condition. This group, a small medal collection in and of itself, comes with comprehensive archival research and English translation.

    $2,700.00 Complete Documented Group of 3 Awards: Order of Alexander Nevsky, Medal for Valor and Medal for Victory over Germany. The Nevsky is an extremely scarce version with serial number 12229 engraved at 5'oclock. All three decorations are in near mint condition; the Nevsky in particular is literally impossible to upgrade condition vise. The recipient, an Infantry platoon commander, had been wounded in combat four times and incapacitated by the end of the war. Comes with archival research and translation.

    $1,300.00 Documented Group of Orders of Glory 2nd and 3rd cl. awarded to an Antitank Artillery Sergeant, commander of a 76-mm gun crew. He took part in the great tank engagement in Prokhorovka during the battle of Kursk and earned his first decoration, a Medal for Valor, in the Fourth Battle of Kharkov. His Order of Glory 3rd cl. was awarded for repelling a German attack in January 1944 in which he destroyed an enemy tank and up to a platoon of infantry, whereas the Glory 2nd cl. was for fighting off an enemy ambush in a nighttime action during the January 1945 offensive in Carpathian Mountains. This courageous soldier ended the war with a total of 5 decorations - an uncommonly large number for an NCO. The group includes comprehensive archival research and English translation.

    $495.00 Documented Group of Two Orders of Labor Glory, 2nd and 3rd cl., awarded in 1976 and 1985. The awards and both documents are in excellent condition.
