    *CLICK ON THUMBNAIL OR ITEM NAME TO VIEW FULL DESCRIPTION AND PHOTOS
    $12,000.00 Large certificate for Honorary Revolutionary Weapon, a sword with the Order of the Red Banner of RSFSR inserted in the handle. One of only 21 Revolutionary Honor Edged Weapons ever issued.

    $995.00 Large certificate for Order of the Red Banner of RSFSR, issued on 4 November 1924 to Commander of the 172nd Rifle Regiment. Archivally mounted on linen and handsomely framed.

    $1,750.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 1, Var. 2, Sub-var. 2 ("Mirror Reverse"), #7286, awarded in December 1939 to a Politruk (junior political officer) of an infantry unit for the Battle of Khalkhin Gol. Very uncommon award, one of only 595 Red Banners issued for the series of battles against the Japanese in June - September 1939 (known in the West as Nomonhan Incident). In fine condition. Includes archival research.

    $1,950.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 2, Var. 2, #6030, awarded in August 1941 to a squad commander of a tank support motorized infantry unit of the Northwestern Front for fighting at Daugavpils in Latvia. Assisted by 3 other soldiers, he captured prisoner 12 German NCOs in action on 28 June 1941 - just 6 days after the start of the Patriotic War. The order is an extremely uncommon specimen with a serial number from the Type 1 "Mirror Reverse" range. This is one of the few Type 2 pieces that had the "un-utilized" serial numbers of the Type 1 Red Banners that didn't pass quality inspection and were subsequently melted down at the mint. In fine condition. Comes with archival research (the award commendation is one of the earliest we have seen for the Patriotic War, with the award petition addressed directly to Stalin.)

    $945.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 2, Var. 3, Sub- var. 1 (screw back), #52001, awarded to an artillery captain for providing direct fire support during an infantry assault southwest of Voronezh in January 1943. On a single day the artillery squadron he commanded destroyed two platoons of German infantry, two 75 mm artillery pieces, two vehicles and up to 70 horse drawn carriages. The order has not been converted to suspension; although the enamel is damaged, this is still an attractive piece, and its overall condition is about average for the screw back type. Comes with archival research.

    $995.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 2, Var. 3, Sub-var. 1, #32937, awarded in July 1942 to a commander of Katyusha Multiple Rocket Launcher squadron of (aka Stalin's Organs) of the Northwestern Front. The award was bestowed for a series of actions in April - May 1942 near Staraya Russa (at the northern side of the famous Demyansk bulge) in which his squadron destroyed 2500 enemy troops. The order is in good overall condition, an unaltered piece showing a lot of "combat character" and therefor attractive despite significant enamel damage. Comes with archival research.

    $1,600.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 2, Var. 3 (screw back), #40568, awarded to the Politruk of a tank support submachine-gunners company in a tank brigade of the Kalinin Front. In August 1942, he showed exceptional bravery during the offensive at Rzhev. He replaced a fallen commander of one of the platoons and despite being wounded himself, personally led an infantry charge thus ensuring the success for his entire company. The order is in very fine condition, a very attractive piece - far better than vast majority of surviving Red Banner screw backs. Comes with complete archival research.

    $1,600.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 3, Var. 2 (Strekalov classification), so-called "Coat Hanger" Krasnokamsk Mint conversion from screw back, #63178. Awarded in November 1944 to a Quartermaster Colonel of the Leningrad Front. Comes with archival research. An extremely rare and desirable variation.

    $420.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 4, Var. 1, #183249, November 1944 length of service issue to a Red Army Colonel. The order is in outstanding condition - practically impossible to upgrade for a WW2 Red Banner. Comes with archival research and partial English translation.

    $550.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 4, Var. 1, #97027, awarded in May 1944 to a Lithuanian national, deputy rifle battalion commander in the 16th Lithuanian Rifle Division. The order was a cumulative award for his excellent service, but the recommendation especially cited the 1943 episode when he killed three German scouts with machine gun while covering the retreat of his battalion and evacuation of the wounded - despite being wounded himself. The order is a very uncommon early suspension type (note the low serial number) in excellent condition. Comes with archival research.

    $445.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 4, Var. 1, #178082, awarded in September 1944 to an Infantry Junior Lieutenant. He earned the award in battle for the Vistula River bridgehead near Lublin during the previous July. On a single day, he reconnoitered German positions three times gathering vital information, and on the following night showed exemplary bravery in repelling seven enemy counterattacks. He was recommended for an Order of Lenin but ultimately received the Red Banner. An uncommon award, one of relatively few late war Red Banners for combat rather than length of service. The order is in fine to very fine condition. Comes with archival research.

    $395.00 Order of the Red Banner, #285169, Type 4, Var. 1, circa late 1944 - early 1945 issue. In superb condition. Comes on original wartime suspension.

    $430.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 4, Var. 2, Sub-var. 1 (with a "Small" mint mark), #195594, circa late 1944 issue. A relatively scarce Moscow Mint version, one of some 8000 ever made. In excellent condition.

    $270.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 4, Var. 2, Sub-var. 3 (with "large" mint mark), #208988, circa early 1945 issue. An interesting WW2 example in very fine condition.

    $390.00 Order of the Red Banner Type 5, Var. 2, Sub-var. 2, #389898, circa 1952-53 issue. One of the less common post-war versions made by the Moscow Mint. In near mint condition.

    $330.00 Order of the Red Banner, Type 5, Var. 3, Sub-var. 3, #549269. One of the last Orders of the Red Banner ever manufactured. In excellent condition.

    $6,500.00 Order of the Red Banner, 2nd award, Type 2, Var. 2 (Monetnyi Dvor screw back), #2395, August 1943 issue to a bomber pilot and commander of a night bomber regiment. He flew a total of 254 combat missions - many of them in support of the Soviet ground troops during the battle of Kursk. The order is fine to very fine condition, with minor repairs to enamel but never converted to suspension. Comes with comprehensive archival research and English translation.

    $5,800.00 Order of the Red Banner, 2nd award, Type 2, Var. 2 (screw back with Monetnyi Dvor mint mark), #1370, awarded in November 1942 to a Sergeant Major, a rear gunner / radio operator of a Pe-2 dive bomber of the Kalinin Front. By September 1942, he had completed a total of 151 combat missions, most of them for aerial reconnaissance. On one of his early missions of the war he shot down a German fighter with assistance of two other gunners of his bomber group. The fact that he was decorated with a Second Order of the Red Banner is an exceptionally rare case: almost all recipients of consecutive Red Banner awards were commissioned officers, not NCOs. The decoration itself is a beautiful early piece with some highly uncommon features. Comes with archival research.

    $950.00 Order of the Red Banner, 2nd award, Type 5, Var. 2, #22448, awarded in 1953 to an Air Force Colonel. In excellent condition. The recipient fought in the "Winter War" against Finland as a bomber pilot and served for most of the Patriotic War as chief navigation inspector with various fronts and military districts. Comes with archival research and a copy of recipient's WW2 order booklet which has a nice early photo of him.

    $5,800.00 Order of the Red Banner 4th Award, Type 5, Var. 1, #2058, awarded in 1952 to an Air Force Major General, a Hero of the Soviet Union who had earned a Hero Star in the 1939-40 Winter War against Finland. In 1937-38 he flew 113 combat missions on a TB bomber in the Spanish Civil War. In the early part of the Patriotic War he commanded a bomber regiment and took part in nearly all the major defensive battles including Leningrad, Polar Region, Moscow, Caucasus, and Stalingrad. He continued to fly combat sorties throughout the war to train and lead other pilots, and by the V-Day had added 73 combat missions to his already impressive pre-war tally. After the war, he continued to serve in the Air Force, graduated from the General Staff Academy and in 1953, took part in the purge of the Air Force of the Moscow District following the arrest of its commander Vasiliy Stalin (son of late Joseph Stalin.) Eventually he rose to an Air Corps commander and retired only in 1973 having the rank of Lieutenant General.
    The order is in excellent condition. Comes with archival research and copy of the article about the article about the recipient in the catalog "Heroes of the Soviet Union". A scarce fourth consecutive Red Banner award to an extremely interesting individual!

    $45.00 "The Order of the Red Banner" Durov, Strekalov, C. 2006, Moscow, Russian text. This landmark reference is a required reading for the serious collector of Soviet awards and is unlikely to be surpassed.
