    $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.

    $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).

    $2,300.00 Order of Alexander Nevsky, Type 1 Var. 3 suspension converted to screw back by its recipient to comply with the post-1943 regulations, #12836. Awarded in August 1944 to a courageous artillery officer for destroying German tanks, artillery pieces and infantry, and repelling 8 counter-attacks near Lvov. In good overall condition, an attractive example despite partially restored enamel. Comes with complete archival research.

    $1,400.00 Order of Alexander Nevsky, Type 2, #5905, awarded to a reconnaissance platoon commander for courage and leadership during the July 1944 offensive in Estonia. He found locations of many enemy weapon emplacements thus helping to destroy them and making possible a breakthrough on the Narva River, and led a recon detachment that boldly attacked and destroyed a numerically superior enemy force. Enamel restored on two of the arms, fair to good overall condition. Comes with archival research and English translation.

    $2,300.00 Order of Alexander Nevsky, Type 3, early "Deep Dish" variation, #11452, awarded to a Guards Infantry Major, a staff officer of the 8th Guards Army, 1st Belorussian Front (formerly the 62nd Army of Stalingrad fame). The Nevsky was bestowed for his outstanding performance in the breakthrough at Kovel, crossing of the Vistula River, and expansion of the bridgehead at Magnuszew. An uncommon and beautiful piece with extremely low serial number and in superb condition. Comes with complete archival research and full 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 o'clock. All three decorations are in near mint condition; the Nevsky in particular is literally impossible to upgrade condition-wise. 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.

    $1,100.00 Order of Alexander Nevsky, Type 3, #17974, circa 1944. A relatively scarce sub-variation of an early "Deep Dish" Type 3 with a small, slightly curved down mint mark located near the bottom of the reverse. Enamel and gilt professionally restored. Good overall condition.

    $1,975.00 Order of Alexander Nevsky, Type 3, "Deep Dish" version, #30751, awarded in April 1945 to an Azeri national, a commander of a tank-borne Guards rifle company with the 6th Guards Tank Army. Riding on top of American-made Sherman tanks, he and his men stormed several villages in western Hungary during the offensive to Vienna and inflicted severe losses on the SS troops that confronted them. The badge is a beautiful and uncommon piece featuring deep counter-relief of the star and distinctive "shadow" of the starburst on the reverse. It is in excellent condition and includes original silver screw plate. Comes with a very interesting award commendation that specifically mentions fighting against SS troops.

    $930.00 Order for Service to the Homeland, 3rd cl, Variation 1 with well-defined counter-relief to the reverse of starburst, #2471, circa mid 1970s issue. Scarce early piece in very fine to excellent condition.

    $1,100.00 Order for Service to the Homeland in the Soviet Armed Forces, 3rd cl., #80445, awarded in May 1987 to a navigator of an AN- 12 transport airplane for exemplary service in Afghanistan. He took part in combat operations in many areas including Khost, Herat, Kunduz and Kandahar. On at least one occasion, he saved his crew and machine by detecting a rocket fired at his airplane upon takeoff and directing the evasive countermeasures. The order is in near mint condition. Comes with a photocopy of the award record card and award recommendation.

    $395.00 Order for Service to the Homeland in the Soviet Armed Forces, 3rd class, #137730. In very fine to excellent condition.
