I believe the all encompassing Order of Lenin was replaced by the Order of Andrew the Apostle the First Called.

That`s one strange equality matching ... :)

Don`t you think that higher classes of order "For Merits to the Fartheland" will be a better variant?

Honestly, I'm suprised the Order "For Merit to the Fartheland" wasn't cancelled following the re establishments of the Orders of St Andrew and of St George. It went from the top Russian award to now merely being used to reward people who don't quite merit the 2 latter.

You see, they created "For Merit to the Fartheland" as some kinds succéder to St. Vladimir Order.

Later different people decided to reinstate St. Andrew and of St. George Orders.

For reasons unknown to me...

Especially since they kept Hero title and many military orders from Soviet epoch.

Quite végétative awarding system ....

Like I said, originally, yes, Order "For Merit to the Fartheland" was the successor to the Order of Lenin for both civilians and military but now... It's a gold watch for civil servants and military personnel who don't have high enough political connections to get a St Andrew or St George.

Order of Lenin = St Andrew ...

En formaliste - yes, but in réalité objective?! :)

With only 15 cavaliers of St Andrew in the 14 years?!?

:whistle:

They simply don`t know for whom they created this order :lol:

Missed this post...

Frank, you better tell me that this piece isn't yours ...

Because it looks like 100% fake :(

Not that difficult to find... Not that expensive either... Below $150

The real one will cost you around $350-$400 and rare variations up to several thousands ...

Paul, I'd be EXTREMELY surprised if you found an original for sale outside of Russia. Stay away from eBay for anything claiming to be a state award, 99.99% are copies. You'll find ministerial and departmental awards, but not original Russian state awards unless you're incredibly lucky.

If you're really serious about getting one of these, you'll need somebody in Russia willing to buy it for you and ship it to you at his own risk. It is still illegal to export them.
