Czechoslovakia Order of Socialism

Are you saying it was too cheap or too much?

It is not easy to answer,but the Czechoslovak awards are still interesting in the market for sale and their prices is not low.The start price was 500000 crowns-18000 euro.There were many buyers in the aukcion who were interested in this purchase.It means people have enough money.You know despite of the fact this order was unawarded piece its price was not low.Only the order with number 1 was bestowed to    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Slánský  .

The younger generation of the collectors wants the awards only with the certificates,awards with the destinies.It was the unawarded piece-no person,no certificate,only the piece of a nice goldsmiths work.10 years ago I would buy it but in present time I am lazy and too old  to buy such things.My interest in buying fell down.E.g.I bought Klement Gottwald Order for 8900euro 3 years ago,but it was an awarded piece.It was bestowed on a woman.

You konw when we compare prices awards with the prices of pictures,it a low price.Ok.My opinion it is not too much but it was not me who bought it,but not becouse of the price.Everything is not in the price,but everything is in the necessity to have it.Simply I did not have to own it that is why I did not buy it.

Stunning award, but even considering it's rarity I am surprised it sells for this much. 

Well,Iagree with your opinion,but we have to realise there are a lot of rich people,they make a big money,e.g. 50000eur every day.For some  them it is not a big price.All depends on the situation,if you want to have it or if you do not need it.Money does not play any role.Simply, I wanted to show that not only eMedals,Morton and Eden,Najafcoins sell nice and expensive phaleristic material but also in Prague we can find interesting things.Chains of the Order of White Lion were sold for 80000-100 000 euro there in this auction,by the way.

Ok,we can return to this order,it has been a unique example herefore.Only one piece awarded to Rudolf Slansky,this exemplar was the next one that has appeared for sale.Unawarded.I do not know the destiny of the order ,simply I did not ask the owner of the auction house.Probably some collector missed it and decided to have it.

Anyway,thanks for your interest to the topic.

wow, I wasn't aware people paying so much for Chech awards! It seems like such a niche collecting.

I explain you collecting of awards in Bohemia,first.I do not the exact number of collectors in the Chechia,but they are patriots and about 80% of them collect Czechoslovak awards,about 15% Austro-Hungarian ones and the rest-nice pieces from the world.

In Slovakia I am familiar with 2-3 collectors of Czechoslovak awards,the rest looks for awards of Slovakia 1939-45.A tiny number of collectors collects Austro-Hungarian or Soviet awards,but not too seriosly.

You will not trust me but Czechoslovak awards are interesting for foreigners, too.Simply,because of the low numbers of bestowed pieces.
