WHAT IS THE LOWEST NUMBERED HSU YOU HAVE SEEN?

Recommended Posts

I visited a collector/friend recently and he showed me a Type 1 HSU #15X. When I researched this, I found out that it had been awarded to a fighter pilot during the Khalkin-Gol Campaign in August 1939. I have a Type 1 #2XX. Have any of you seen any Type 1s below #150??? What would something like that be worth? My friend wouldn't tell me what he paid for his nor when and how he acquired it.

I would say that any type 1 HSU would be worth Well over $20k

HSU #1 was awarded to Lyapidevsky - one of the pilots from Cheluskin rescuing mission. His awards are in the State Historical Museum, Moscow which invites a lot of questions on the item shown.

Indeed it does. That's why I mentioned I am not sure about its authenticity. The second one however is good.
