  1. 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
