Order of the Patriotic War, 1st cl., Type 1, Var. 3, #23731, awarded in December 1943 to a colonel, Deputy Chief of the Artillery of the 4th Shock Army, 1st Baltic Front. This was a cumulative award for ensuring flawless delivery of ammunition and supervising good maintenance of the artillery pieces from the beginning of the war, but in particular for his outstanding performance during the offensive near Nevel in the fall of 1943. The order is in fine to very fine condition, much better than majority of Type 1 awards; it has enamel repaired on the top arm but is otherwise very nicely preserved and has never been converted to a screw back. Comes with archival research.

The serial number has not been altered unlike most other official Duplicates. In near mint condition.

Order of the Patriotic War 1st cl., Type 2 Var. 2, #300798, with a document (order booklet), posthumously awarded on 31 August 1944 to commander of a T-34 tank platoon. He was killed in action the day before while attempting to break out of an encirclement near the city of Tartu in southeastern Estonia. In the preceding days, he showed outstanding valor and leadership in combat; in just a single day, his tank destroyed three German artillery pieces, two mortars, a motor vehicle and up to 20 enemy soldiers. The order was issued long after the war, in 1966, apparently to give for safekeeping to a close relative - probably the widow - of the deceased soldier. Both the order and order booklet are in near mint condition. Comes with a copy of the award commendation and award decree from the Russian military archives.
