    Heroes of the Soviet Union
    $12,500.00 Group of Five Decorations and Two Documents to a Hero of the Soviet Union Artillery Lieutenant, a Chuvash national. Includes Gold Star Medal #4543; Order of the Patriotic War, 1st cl. (WW2 issue); three medals including a WW2 Medal for Valor; Large Certificate for the Title of Hero; Order Booklet; and a post-war passport photo of the recipient. The Title of Hero was bestowed for a series of actions during the 1944 Bagration Offensive in Belorussia in which he commanded a 76- mm gun battery and among other things, personally disabled a Ferdinand assault gun. He and his artillerymen fought off Nazi assault after being cut off from their own infantry support and inflicted tremendous losses on the Germans trying to escape over the Berezina River. The Hero Star is in superb condition; overall this is a very impressive Hero group!

    $8,950.00 Gold Star Medal of Hero of the Soviet Union, #8997, with a Hero's ID (aka "Small Certificate"), May 1946 issue to a combat pilot for completing 173 highly successful combat missions on Pe-2 dive-bomber (and earlier in the war Su-2 bomber), many of them as a group leader with the 8th Air Army. He fought in many battles including Stalingrad, Crimea and Berlin, and received an unusually large number of awards even for a WW2 pilot: 11 numbered decorations in total not counting the campaign medals. The Gold Star Medal is in excellent condition, outstanding for a Hero Star. The document shows much wear as is usually the case, but all of its pages are present and text is fully legible. Comes with comprehensive archival research.

    $1,500.00 Large certificate for the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, issued to a submarine boatswain. His submarine L-4 made 25 successful sorties in the Black Sea - many of them assisting in the defense of Sevastopol - and sunk seven enemy ships, a staggering total by the standards of the Soviet navy. The 1945 document is hand-signed by Chairman Kalinin. The certificate is in very good to excellent condition and comes complete with its original hard folder. Included are a photocopy of the award commendation and an article about the recipient in the catalog "Heroes of the Soviet Union" (the latter has his photo).

    $235.00 Complete and Original 1941 Heroes of the Air War over Leningrad portrait portfolio.

    $39.00 Contemporary lithographic portrait of pilot Hero of the Soviet Union. Nice.

    $50.00 Lithograph portrait Fighter ace Trofim Litvinenko, Hero of the Soviet Union. He shot down 23 enemy airplanes on the Leningrad Front, circa 1944.

    $195.00 "Heroes of the Soviet Union" massive 2-volume set, Russian Text, Moscow, 1987. This out-of-print official publication is the ultimate guide to the Heroes of the Soviet Union! Includes capsule biographies of every Hero Star recipient, portraits and a brief description of the feat for which the Title of Hero was given.
