  1. Thanks Christian! I will keep you posted about future developments ;-)
  2. No need to say to say sorry;-) I'm well aware that the value is affected by the serial number alteration ;-)
  3. Thanks Christian, Yes, it does sound like a plausible explanation. I have not checked the files yet. Do you think this kind of information is documented? Cheers! Matt
  4. I'm very sure it's authentic. Not only because the COA was made by 3 experts (and because I am not exactly a beginner either), but also because this order was bought in Russia 1993 by a trusted friend of mine. Now, the reason why the serial number was buffed out... One can only speculate. What I did notice is that the serial number was erased in a similar manor as some duplicate OPW's 1 and (other?) duplicate Glory's 1st class I have witnessed. But the engraving of the new serial number is a real mistery. The order was not purchased as part of a group so it was not done to deceive.
  5. Here it is. But as you can see, the serial number was altered. I am really curious why this was done.
  6. No, it's authentic and comes with a COA. Probably some distortion as a result of the bright the lighting.
  7. I forgot to watch the Suvorov 1 but the Abkhazia ORBL sold for 220,000+20%=$264,000
  8. Could be. But my point was that Paul's remark about Markov would have a hard time sellling his items for the est. price was exaggerated to say the least. Also, there was some doubt here by others whether this set would even reach the starting price. Btw, I placed a bid on the Kutuzov 3 set but just missed it. A real bargain IMHO.
  9. I agree. As a mater of fact I wantend to place a bid on the Nevsky suspension but I was too late. All other items were way too expensive IMHO. The HSU went for £5000 If I'm not misstaken. Taken the 20% buyers premium into account thats $7500... not bad
  10. Don't you worry, this lot will sell for the price mentioned without a problem. Believe me... ;-) Last January he sold a single undocumented OG1 for $7750 so $10k for this set will be easy to accomplish. Btw, only 5 out of the 30 Soviet awards didn't sell for the estimated price last time so I really don't see your negative stance in this matter. The only substantial decline in prices is that of common Red Banners. But these were ridiculously overpriced 8 years ago.
