  1. Gents, A very nice OGII awarded to a Full Cavalier that is presently at auction in the former Soyuz. The current bid stands at $462.00. The recipient was a corporal with duties as a senior forward observer in an artillery regiment subordinate to a rifle division in the 1st Belorussian Front.

  3. Gents, This extremely worn OGII to a Full Cavalier is now at auction in the former Soyuz. The current bid stands at $363.00. The recipient was a Guards senior sergeant and squad leader assigned to an independent Guards sapper battalion subordinate to a Guards rifle division in the 1st Belorussian Front.

  5. Gents, This is one of two OGIIs awarded to this Full Cavalier during the war. It sold at auction in the former Soyuz on March 14, 2021, for $802.00. The recipient was a senior sergeant serving as a gun crew commander in an anti-tank artillery regiment subordinate to 11th Tank Corps. He was recommended for his OGI for valor during the Battle of Berlin. In addition to his four Orders of Glory, he was also awarded an ORS and BM during the war. Regards, slava1stclass
  6. Gents, In early December 2019, this OGI (serial number 1966) to a Full Cavalier sold on an auction site in the former Soyuz for $8,091.00. When recommended for his OGI, the recipient was a Guards sergeant major serving as a platoon leader assigned to a submachine gun company in a Guards rifle regiment subordinate to a Guards rifle division. His division was subordinate to the 1st Baltic Front at that point. His OGI, however, was not authorized until December 1980. It was issued to replace an erroneous second award of the OGIII which he received during the war. Regards, sla

  9. Gents, This OGI just popped up in the former Soyuz. Unclear if it is for sale. The recipient was a senior sergeant commanding a 45mm cannon crew assigned to a rifle regiment in a rifle division subordinate to 3rd Army. A recipient of the OGII and two OGIIIs during the war, his OGI was issued in August 1955 to replace his erroneously issued second OGIII award. He was also awarded the OPWII, ORS and BM during the war Regards, slava1stclass
  10. Gents, This Full Cavalier "set" is currently available on the well-known auction site. Asking price: $15,000.00. I say "set" because the OGII and OGIII are not original to the group. They are OGs that have been altered to match the recipient's actual OGII and OGIII serial numbers to make it appear as a complete set with the corresponding increased value/price tag. The OGI is original. It was circulating on the market as a loose/single piece some 10 years ago. The recipient was a Guards sergeant major with duties as a radio station chief serving in an independent Guards reco
  11. Gents, This OGI is currently available at the well-known NYC-area dealer. Price: $9,800.00. The recipient was a Guards senior sergeant with duties as a squad leader serving in a Guards engineer-sapper battalion subordinate to a Guards engineer-sapper brigade assigned to 69th Army. He was awarded his OGI for valor during the first days of the Berlin Strategic Offensive Operation in the vicinity of Lebus, Germany. He was also awarded the ORS, BM and, as detailed in my book, was one of the very few Full Cavaliers to have been awarded the Partisan Medal (Partisan Medal Second Class in
  12. Gents, This Full Cavalier set is currently available with a West European dealer. The asking price is $11,060.00. The group includes many of the Full Cavalier's additional orders and medals such as his ORS and CSM as well as various defense and capture medals. It should be noted, however, that the OGII and OGIII are not original to the recipient, but rather OGIIIs whose original serial numbers were eradicated and the serial numbers corresponding to this Full Cavalier's awards substituted in their place. The OGII in this set is in fact an OGIII that has had its central medalli
  13. Gents, This Full Cavalier group is currently at auction in the former Soyuz. The opening bid is set at $9,645.00. The recipient was a sergeant serving as a squad leader in an independent sapper battalion subordinate to a rifle division when recommended for his OGI. His ORB resulted from a front commander-level downgrade to the original recommendation for the Hero of the Soviet Union title. Regards, slava1stclass
