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.

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.

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.

    • 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.
