    *CLICK ON THUMBNAIL OR ITEM NAME TO VIEW FULL DESCRIPTION AND PHOTOS
    $995.00 Order of Glory, 2nd cl., Type 2 (early "thin" version), #9244, awarded on 23 October 1944 to a 76-mm gun crew commander for repelling several German counterattacks in Latvia. He inflicted massive losses on the enemy by firing the gun at point-blank range and within a single day, destroyed three German machine guns with their crews. The order is in very fine to excellent condition, much better than usual for an Order of Glory 2nd cl. Comes with archival research.

    $840.00 Order of Glory, 2nd cl., Type 3, #31571, awarded to a Reconnaissance Scout Corporal of the 2nd Ukrainian Front for bravery in action in April 1945 in a river crossing assault in Austria southeast of Vienna. He was among the advance group that crossed the river under German fire, single-handedly took out a machine gun nest thus clearing the path for the rest of his group, and eliminated 7 enemy soldiers with hand-grenades and submachine gun. The order is in excellent condition, with nicely preserved enamel and gilt on the center medallion. Comes with archival research.

    $295.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2, #23134, awarded in January 1944 to a senior sergeant of the 1st Tank Corps, technician of a mobile radio station mounted on a Lend-Lease Willys Jeep. He was wounded in the head by a shell fragment but flatly refused to go to the hospital and despite excruciating pain, continued to maintain uninterrupted radio communications for his unit. Note the serial number which is extremely low for an Order of Glory 3rd cl. and well within the Glory 2nd cl. serial number range. In very fine condition. Comes with archival research.

    $120.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2 Var. 1, #227225, circa late 1944 issue. "Smooth" clock face sub-variation in very fine to excellent condition. Comes on original WW2 suspension.

    $440.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2, Var. 1, #605147, awarded in September 1945 to a gun layer of a 76-mm gun, for the war against Japan. He with his crew killed 30 Japanese soldiers and neutralized a field gun and 2 machine guns during an enemy counterattack which took place in Manchuria on 28 August 1945, long after the surrender of most of the Japanese forces elsewhere. The order is in superb condition. Comes with archival research.

    $115.00 Order of Glory, 3rd cl., Type 2, Var. 1, #629019, circa mid- to late-1940s. Sub-variation featuring simplified, so-called "orange" ("apelsin") style of the Kremlin clock. In excellent condition. This piece was probably physically issued to its recipient in the second half of 1940s although it could have been awarded by an official decree before the end of the war or soon thereafter; in either case, it is definitely a decoration for WW2 exploits.

    $45.00 "Soldier's Glory", Volume 5. I. Roschin. C. 1981, Moscow. Russian text, hard cover, 285 pp. The book contains essays about 70 recipients of the Order of Glory, 1st cl. accompanied by their photos. This scarce out-of-print reference is great supplement to the standard reference guide or information that can be found online.

    $35.00 "Soldier's Glory", Volume 6. I. Roschin. C. 1982, Moscow. Russian text, hard cover, 255 pp.
