MARSHAL?S STAR OF THE SOVIET UNION


Recommended Posts

I just found that in the archives of emedals.ca I thought some might be interested to see this piece.

The Marshal?s Star, awarded to Marshals of the Soviet Union, instituted in September 1940. Star is made of 18 Kt. Gold, set with white gems. Weighs 32.7 grams. Star appears to be museum copy, or private purchase, not officially awarded Star. Comes with neck ribbon, and in fitted case. Very fine condition.

HSU Radzyevsky, Aleksey Ivanovich (13. 8. 1911 - 30. 8. 1979)

Dear Bryan,

the Marshal's Star belonged to Radzyevsky http://www.warheroes.ru/hero/hero.asp?Hero_id=3977 , who got his HSU also rather late: 21.02.1978 ( медаль № 11294) ;) .

Besides the Marshal's Star & HSU he got two Order of Lenins, six Order of the Red Banners, two orders of Suvorov of the 1st degree, one order of Kutuzov of the 1st degree, one order of Suvorov 2nd degree, Order of the Red Banner of Labor, with Order of the Red Star and a "Motherland" 3rd degree. A rather proud & comprehensive collection :D .

His name seems to be of aristocratic Polish origin :unsure: ?

It seems, that Radzyevsky's Marshal's Star is in a private collection and not in a museum of the Russian Federation :unsure: ?

Market value of the set: I guess, far beyond the USD 100k benchmark :cheeky: .

Best regards :beer:

These came from a French forum. The guy who posted them probably took them from a Russian forum. Now it's on GMIC. An English forum. ;)

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
