Wow! That is a reasonable price! If only I was not distracted by holidays. :)

Yup, I was a bit disappointed myself to be honest. Not a bad price but in this condition to a full cavalier... I wish the buyer didn't pay me. I wouldn't have sold it if I knew the price would be this low. Especially since I have sold Glory 2nd's in worse condition with a less interesting story to non-full-cavaliers for over $700

Well, dear USSR, I guess, the hammer price of your OGII was at least 50% under the estimate :-(

The upper middle class in the former Soviet Union isn't that well off, as some years ago and the classical middle class in the western world, which invested in fine arts & collectibles, almost vanished :-(

Kind regards

I agree, and on top of that the citation was pretty good. The vagaries of the market...

Well, the prices of Soviet medals will go up and down, as the history since 1992 showed, but rather high-end items with documentation will always have a sort of eternal value. The decline of US-propaganda in the world and the re-writing of the history of World War II might increase - in the long rund - the interest in documented Soviet awards, I guess.

Gents,

  One of the major drivers in publishing my book on the Full Cavaliers of the Soviet Order of Glory was just that - to advance awareness and understanding of Soviet soldier valor in the Second World War among English speakers.  While much about them is written in Russian, Ukrainian and other languages of the former USSR, precious little is available in English. 

 Whether my book might also have the secondary effect of influencing the collector market in the West remains an open question - although it cannot be discounted.

Gents,

  This well-worn OGI (trust me, I have seen much worse) was just listed on the well-known NYC-area dealer's site.  Asking price:  $7,900.00.  It was awarded to a Junior Sergeant who served as a machine gunner in a Rifle Division.

Gents,

  This very nice Full Cavalier set includes the Full Cavalier booklet.  It is offered for sale in the former Soyuz.  At the current exchange rate, the asking price is $22,879.00.

Gents,

As GHB notes, this is clearly a "thrown together" Full Cavalier "set." While OGI s/n 2174 is legit, it was never officially awarded and therefore has no associated OGII or OGIII.

The "advertised" OGII is a doctored OGIII. The "advertised" OGIII appears legit.

In offering OGI s/n 2174 as part of a "Full Cavalier set", the seller is simply trying to move the OGI at his original asking price for the OGI as a stand-alone piece.  Steer clear.

Gents,

  Last listed for a BIN price of $11,999.00 on the well-known auction site in late February 2016, it is once again listed for sale there.  He has increased the BIN price to $12,499.00.  Fake sets are subject to inflation too you know...
