    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 massive Ferdinand assault gun. He and his artillerymen fought off German assault after being cut off from their own infantry support and inflicted tremendous losses on the enemy trying to escape over the Berezina River. The Hero Star is in superb condition; overall this is a very impressive Hero group!

    $14,950.00 Group of Two Decorations, Three Documents and Three Photos of a Hero of the Soviet Union Il-2 Shturmovik pilot of the Volkhov / Leningrad Front. He destroyed a massive number of enemy targets in 99 ground attack missions. The group includes Gold Star Medal #5330 and a scarce Type 5 Var. 2 Lenin (without the "dimple"), #26418 which was issued with the Star in February 1945. The documents are Order Booklet, Large Hero Certificate, and recipient's military Photo ID from 1949. Included are also two large original wartime photos of him wearing his decorations (one of them taken before he earned his Hero Star) and an excellent group photo of his comrades- in-arms. The medals and all the documents are in very fine / excellent condition, much better than average.

    $850.00 Large Certificate for the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, awarded to a Combat Engineer Private for extraordinary bravery and fortitude he had shown while building bridges under enemy fire. Comes complete with the original hard folder. In excellent condition.

    $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).

    $795.00 Hero of the Soviet Union Photo ID (aka "Small Certificate" for the Title of Hero), 1949 issue to a WW2 fighter ace. A deputy fighter squadron commander, he completed 327 combat sorties and shot down 19 enemy airplanes. He started flying combat missions in May 1943 and soon scored his first aerial victories - one of them by ramming a German Bf-109 fighter! The Title of Hero was bestowed upon him relatively late, in February 1948, apparently after all the WW2 documentation could be finally found revealing that he was indeed eligible for a Hero Star. The document is in very good condition.

    $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.
