  1. Gents, Things have been very quiet on the sales front. One can only wonder if the ongoing corona virus crisis and its related severe effect on the global economy may cause some to liquidate their collections to raise capital. Regards slava1stclass
  2. Gents, Remains available; no takers thus far. The BIN price is unchanged. Regards, slava1stclass
  3. Matt, What is the serial number of the first/top comparison image? Should the discussion of concerns relating to OGI 363 be taking place on another online forum, please provide the link to it. You may PM me the link if you prefer. Thank you. Regards, slava1stclass
  4. Matt, Since you sold this group (https://sovietorders.com/product/group-order-glory-1st-2nd-3rd-class/), I assume someone is now questioning its authenticity and looking to take you up on your lifetime guarantee. Please see attached images of an OGI that falls within seven numbers of the OGI in the set you sold. I hope this is of some assistance to you. Regards, slava1stclass
  5. Gents, The catalog for the The New York Sale Auction L (50) is now online. The auction is scheduled for January 16, 2020. One Order of Glory First Class is included in the auction. Its details follow: "3106 Researched Order of Glory 1st Class. Type 1. Award # 3169. 23K GOLD. Comes with copies of the full research, about 20 pages, including Award Card and all Citations. Awarded to sergeant Pishkevich V.N., who, according to research, was bestowed it in 1969 (!), apparently in exchange for duplicate 3rd class awarding. Most likely one of the very last awarding of this order in the USSR era. Comes with Certificate of Authenticity from A. Filer (9.5 out of 10 condition rating). Rare such. Condition: Mint condition, flawless enamels, all original, including suspension and ribbon. Silver connecting ring uncut. $10,000" Regards, slava1stclass
  6. Gents, The Battle of Berlin's 75th anniversary is but a few short months away (the battle commenced on April 16, 1945). For the first time in English, the battle is chronicled via the combat exploits of Red Army soldiers who were awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union title for their valor in capturing the city.
