  1. Gents, This OGI is now listed on the well-known auction site with a BIN price of $12,500.00. Regards, slava1stclass
  2. Gents, Just relisted with the BIN price lowered to $1,700.00. Regards, slava1stclass
  3. Gents, The BIN price dropped to $1,800.00 on January 26th. I still advise caution. Regards, slava1stclass
  4. 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
  5. 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

    PaulR It is the Italian Partisan Division "Garibaldi" medal. Regards, slava1stclass
  9. Gents, This set has reappeared on the well-know auction site. It is still located in Latvia. Opening bid was .99 U.S. cents. Current bid stands at $57.00. Regards, slava1stclass
  10. Gents, While many people continue to "watch" this auction on the well-known site, none has yet pulled the trigger. Wisely so. Regards, slava1stclass
  11. Gents, A very, very interesting development has emerged. Evidently, the above Full Cavalier set currently offered on the well-known auction site and located in China, is not what it is alleged to be. Why you may ask? Turns out the actual set is located in the former Soyuz. Images of the original set are attached. Note the China set's attempt to match the numbering style of the original Soyuz set. At first glance (and without detailed images - especially of the OGI), the China set appeared legit. The accompanying Full Cavalier booklet (which is legit) only bolstered this false impression. Buyer beware. Regards, slava1stclass.
  12. Gents, It's that time of year once again. The New York Sale Auction XLVII is set for January 10, 2019. Included in this year's Russian Coins, Orders and Medals auction is one Full Cavalier set. The recipient was one of the very, very few Full Cavaliers to have earned that status while serving as a combat medic. He was a Guards sergeant major serving in a tank battalion subordinate to a Guards tank brigade when recommended and approved for his OGI. He was also awarded a BM and CSM during the war. Note, too, that his OGII is the so-called "border reverse" variant. Opening bid: $15,000.00. Regards, slava1stclass
  13. Gents, A lot of positive buzz about this set on our sister Russian collector forums. Regards, slava1stclass
  14. Gents, The Buy It Now price was lowered to $42,500.00 yesterday. Regards, slava1stclass
  15. Gents, Just listed on the well-known auction site. A Category 1 Full Cavalier set issued to a Guards junior sergeant who served as a squad leader in an independent Guards sapper battalion when recommended for his OGI. The BIN price is set at $16,600.00. He was also awarded a BM during the war. Regards, slava1stclass
