    Order of the Patriotic War 1st class, Type 3, "Harlequin" version, #2237530, with a document, awarded in 1985 to Viktor Osipov.

    Order of the Patriotic War 1st class, Type 3, "Harlequin" version, #2237530, with a document, awarded in 1985 to Viktor Osipov.

    Silver gilt, enamels; 46.3 mm tall, 44.3 mm wide; weighs 26.1 g not including the screw plate. Sub-variation with a depression around the screw post. This particular specimen has an uncommon mint flaw: silver plating covering a small segment on both sides, apparently spilled over accidentally when the dark silver finish was applied to the rifle and sword. Russian collectors refer to this type of defect as Arlekin ("Harlequin"), and it is rather sought after due to its distinctive look.

    The order is in very fine to excellent condition. The gold plating is somewhat pale but overall well-preserved and clearly visible on both sides, does not show any tarnish. The factory-applied dark finish on the rifle and sword is perfect. The enamel is essentially pristine. The screw post is slightly shortened (this was probably done by the original recipient for convenience, as was customary) but its current length of approx.10 mm is more than sufficient for proper functionality. Original screw plate is included.

    The document is a standard order booklet for the 1985 "jubilee" Order of the Patriotic War, 1st class. It is in excellent condition, showing only mild wear to the cover.
