    $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.

    $4,425.00 Documented Group of 5 Decorations to deputy commander of a "Guards Mortars" Regiment (Katyusha Rocket Launchers.) Includes Order of the Red Star #29834; Order of Alexander Nevsky; two Orders of the Patriotic War 1st cl. (both WW2 issue); and an Order of the Red Banner. The Red Star was awarded very early on for the defensive phase of the Battle of Moscow, specifically for the defense of Tula - the famous arms manufacturing center near Moscow that never surrendered despite many German attempts to capture it. Condition of the decorations ranges from very fine to excellent. This highly uncommon group includes order booklet and archival research.

    $2,990.00 Group of 6 decorations and 7award documents to a Police Lieut. General, Minister of Interior of the Soviet Republic of Georgia. Among the awards are WW2 Order of the Red Star, two post-war civilian orders, and documented medals for the Defense of Moscow, Protecting the Public Order, and Guarding the USSR State Border (Var. 1 in silver.) The group also includes a documented Police 60th Anniversary table medal in original folio case. The recipient served as a high-ranking KGB operative before becoming Minister of MVD of Georgian SSR from 1972-79. The person he succeeded on that post was none other than Eduard Shevardnadze - the future Soviet foreign minister under Gorbachev and later, president of the newly independent Republic of Georgia. An extremely uncommon group to a very important Soviet official.

    $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.

    $1,950.00 Documented Group of 3 decorations including Orders of Lenin, Red Banner and Red Star, and WW2 award document (order booklet.) During the last year of the war, the recipient had the rank of Captain and served as deputy commander / acting chief of staff of a mobile repair base with the armored troops of the 28th Army. In this capacity, he distinguished himself during the offensives in East Prussia. The Order of Lenin is a post-war issue in very fine condition; the two other orders are in very fine / excellent condition.

    $995.00 Group of two Orders of Glory, 2nd and 3rd cl. to a Guards Artillery NCO, a Georgian national. The Glory 2nd cl. is an early Type 2 ("Thin" version). The orders are in very fine to excellent condition and come with archival research. The 3rd class was awarded for destroying a German tank near Lake Balaton in Hungary in December 1944, while the 2nd class was bestowed for disabling two enemy armored personnel carriers and two machine gun nests during the storming of Vienna in April 1945. A quintessential WW2 combat award group of a Soviet soldier!
