It all depends on the classification one uses. I'd say this is a type 4, variation 1.1 (in accordance with the Mondvor.narod.ru system: type 4 has a suspension, var. 1 has a dimple on the location of the screwpost, subvar. 1 has a stamped serial number).

What variation is this Order of Lenin Type 5?

Rrgards,

Bill

Nice one Bill ;)

Please check this page http://mondvor.narod.ru/OLenin2.htm

You type (Ferdinand is completely right) is type 4, variation 1, variant 1 (Тип 4, вариант 1, разновидность 1).

Cheers,

Nick

Its incredible hard to say atm, as the prices are seriously going down lately, so i´d say anything between 1200 and 1800 Dollar is possible, i guess. It also depends on the condition and the possible enamel damage.

Others may be able to give you a more precise evaluation.

Many thanks Gents,

Also I have many more Russian medals and badges I picked up back in the early '90s. Is there a reputable price guide and a reference book  for Russian pieces?

McDaniel is the best book for Soviet material and goes into quite good detail. also Anatoli Kushenko's book Ordena CCCP, Aspekt 1994 is good as it gives approximate award dates, In Russian with English summaries. As to price guides none that I would recommend auctions and dealers lists are probably your best bet. There are books for Imperial material but nothing as comprehensive as the Soviet material.

The high end prices were driven by the Oligarchs who had so much money that it was a game to see who could spend the most. Now that the Russian economy is in the doldrums and oil is cheaper than mineral water they have had to rein in their horns, The other problem is that with the high end stuff the fakes get better so much so that it is almost impossible to tell the difference between the real and fake pieces which as a result a piece is considered a fake until it is unequivocally proved genuine. However with low to medium end material (up to a few thousand pounds) the market has held up much better than the Imperial material as the collector base is much more global so things such as Lenin's, Red banners &c still find ready buyers and every time we have Hero's star  there always seems to be plenty of bidders.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
