  1. Gents, With no takers thus far, it was just relisted with a $200.00 price cut and a new BIN price of $1,500.00. Regards, slava1stclass
  2. Gents, It was relisted on the well-known auction site yesterday, but now at $9,999.99 or Best Offer. Regards, slava1stclass
  3. Gents, An interesting twist has come to light. Meet OGI serial number 1153's fraternal twin. Each is original in every respect. This "twin" was accompanied by its associated OGII and OGIII. The set was on the market within the past year. It could be serial number 1153 seen below was issued as an official duplicate to replace the above OGI which is currently offered for sale. Regards, slava1stclass
  4. Gents, Just listed on the well-known NYC-area dealer's web site. Price: $8,500.00. Recipient earned his OGI during the Battle of Berlin. He was a Guards junior sergeant serving as a 120mm mortar crew member in a Guards rifle regiment (subordinated to 8th Guards Army) when recommended for it. He would subsequently march in the June 24, 1945, Victory Parade on Red Square. Regards, slava1stclass
  5. Gents, Listed on the well-known auction site two days ago. The BIN price is set at $9,999.99. The recipient was erroneously awarded two OGIIIs during the war only to have the second award amended to this OGI in 1969 when he officially attained Full Cavalier status. He was a corporal serving as a machine gunner in a rifle regiment assigned to a rifle division when recommended for his final OG. He was also awarded an ORS and two BMs during the war. Regards, slava1stclass
  6. Gents, A Category 1 Full Cavalier set that was up for auction last November in the former Soyuz. The recipient was a sergeant and squad leader in a rifle regiment assigned to a rifle division when he was nominated for the Hero of the Soviet Union title. The rifle corps commander subsequently recommended a downgrade to OGI which was then endorsed further up his chain of command. He was also awarded an ORS and two BMs during the war. It is unknown what the set sold for. Regards, slava1stclass
  7. Gents, This OGI is now listed on the well-known auction site with a BIN price of $12,500.00. Regards, slava1stclass
  8. Gents, Just relisted with the BIN price lowered to $1,700.00. Regards, slava1stclass
  9. Gents, The BIN price dropped to $1,800.00 on January 26th. I still advise caution. Regards, slava1stclass
  10. Gents, It appears the well-known auction site has now pulled the "China" listing. It is no longer an active listing and it is not to be found in either the "Sold" or "Completed" categories. One may assume it was reported as being fraudulent which led to it being delisted. Regards, slava1stclass
  11. Gents, There are now clearly some ongoing shenanigans with this set. Although ostensibly "sold" a few days ago for $788.79, it has now reappeared on the well-known auction site with a BIN price of $1,900.00 and a "Best Offer" option. I'd steer clear of this seller. Regards, slava1stclass
