    $790.00 Order of Glory, 2nd cl, Type 2 ("thin"), #10665, February 1945 issue to an artillery sergeant in a Guards Cavalry unit. During the offensive in East Prussia he commanded a gun crew that within two days destroyed two German military trucks, wiped out a machine-gun nest, and eliminated 25 German soldiers. It is interesting to note that the fighting took place on approaches to Tannenburg, the same area where Russian Imperial Army suffered a catastrophic defeat in 1914. The outcome of course would be very different in 1945. The order is in very fine condition. Comes with archival research.

    $650.00 Order of Glory, 2nd cl., Type 3, #24084, awarded to a Sergeant Major of the Guards Artillery, 1st Belorussian Front. A veteran of the battle of Stalingrad, liberation of Odessa, and forced crossings of the Dnieper, Vistula and Oder, he had been previously awarded with two Medals for Valor and Order of Glory, 3rd cl. He earned the Glory 2nd cl. on the first days of the battle for Berlin by destroying eight German machine- guns, two pillboxes, and large number of infantry near Seelow Heights. The order is in fine to very fine condition. Includes archival research.

    $995.00 Group of two Orders of Glory, 2nd and 3rd cl. to a Guards Artillery NCO, a Georgian national. The Glory 2nd cl. is an early Type 2 ("Thin" version). The orders are in very fine to excellent condition and come with archival research. The 3rd class was awarded for destroying a German tank near Lake Balaton in Hungary in December 1944, while the 2nd class was bestowed for disabling two enemy armored personnel carriers and two machine gun nests during the storming of Vienna in April 1945. A quintessential WW2 combat award group of a Soviet soldier!

    $115.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl, Type 2, Variation 1, #97413, circa mid-1944. Early version with 5-digit serial number. A very attractive piece in very fine to excellent condition, with original suspension.

    $110.00 Order of Glory, 3rd class, Type 2, Variation 1, #117280, circa mid-1944 issue. Relatively scarce early version in excellent condition. Includes original suspension with well-worn old ribbon (a new ribbon will be added at no extra charge at buyer's request.)

    $190.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2 Var. 1, #147396, awarded to a submachine gunner, a Tatar national, for fighting in Lithuania in August 1944. He killed 4 German soldiers at close quarters and despite receiving a concussion, did not leave the battlefield. The order is in excellent condition. Comes with archival research.

    $95.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2 Var. 1, #330201, circa 1945. "Smooth" clock face sub-variation in very fine to excellent condition. Includes original suspension.

    $225.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2, Var. 1, #436169, awarded in August 1944 to an antitank rifle operator in the 4th Guards Kuban Cossack Cavalry Corps, 1st Belorussian Front. On a single day in August 1944 he destroyed a German weapon nest with his PTR rifle and killed 16 Nazi soldiers with submachine gun at point blank range. The award is in very fine to excellent condition and comes with archival research.

    $180.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2, Var. 1, #634829, awarded in August 1946 to an Infantry Private. It came as a belated decoration for his actions in the battle for the Sinyavino Heights following the Operation Iskra ("Spark") which for the first time opened an overland corridor to the besieged Leningrad in January 1943. During the following month, he showed bravery in several infantry assaults near the key railway station of Mga. He was severely wounded in the head by a German submachine gun bullet but although severely handicapped, remained in the military on non-combat duty through the rest of the war. The order is in very fine to excellent condition and includes original suspension. Comes with archival research.
