Full Cavaliers of the Order of Glory - Present Day Market Realities

Recommended Posts

While I regret not getting such a set when it was affordable to me ...

Simply stick around long enought ;)

... I would not purchase an altered set, even if the price reflected it.

Specially for you Paul ;)

Unaltered set without any doc`s.

Sold very recently for (approximately) $11 000.

Cavalier name Ivan Petrovich Sherstobitov.

Gents,

It always disheartens me to see the very obvious gold check "slices" and "gouges" on Glory 1st Class orders. I've encountered these unsightly, intentional disfigurements made by less-than-well educated middlemen on specimens for sale as far back as the early to mid '90s.

As a collector, one must assess whether the presence of such blemishes outweighs the opportunity to purchase either a loose Glory 1st or one that is part of a Full Cavalier set. Given the Glory 1st's relative rarity (compared to the HSU gold star for instance) and pure combat-related pedigree, it can be a touchy call.

Regards,

Gents,

Things remain relatively static here in the West with no new Full Cavalier offerings to speak of. Whether we'll ever see a return to the go-go days of the late '90s/early '00s remains to be seen - although I have my doubts.

Kicking the original... to the forefront. :lol:

This 1st Slava was issued for Koshkin N.E.

He got it for Kustrin (31.5.45)

Destroyed a pillbox, killed "a lot" of Germans, was wounded twice but remained in the ranks.
