  2. Thank you, Joel & Nick, the sets displayed are incomplete, missing the large certificate and boxes for the award and documents. As I have heard it said, if I have to ask how much it costs, I can't afford it, or words to that effect. Here is the documents set without the Order to Eve Iosifovna Gaychene/Gaychenya Large Certificate for the Title of Mother Heroine dated July 19th, 1979 Order Book (#A297220) for the Title & Order of Mother Heroine (#295706) dated July 19th, 1979
  3. Thanks, Paul, it does have a lot of character and a nice patina...

  7. Respectfully, I disagree. Although there were approximately twice as many Orders of the Red Banner of Labor (~1,200,000) as Orders of the Red Banner (~581,000) awarded, the Red Banner of Labor, which was established as the civilian counterpart to the military/long service Order of the Red Banner, remained the highest labor award bestowed. Only the Hero of Socialist Labor/Order of Lenin and Order of the October Revolution were preeminent, political considerations notwithstanding. Nick, thank you very much for sharing your father's impressive array of awards, documents, and compelling history!
