The first and the third order are Order of the Great Patriotric War Version 1985. They were awarded to veterans, participans and wounded of the WW II in the year 1985.

The second one is a Order of the Red Star. S/N 401.608 was awarded in 1944. (Great piece)

They are all genuine.

well you can tell the period from the award number! i heartly recommend buying echoes of war as this will give you a good idea of when peices are awarded!very nice red star to!! :beer:

Although that will only apply to the red star!

If I recall correctly, EOW did not get into 1985 OGPW awards as these are all commemorative non combat awards awarded way after the war (1985 as the name implies!).

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
